(CNS): A 40-year-old man from West Bay has been killed in a road crash and a 53-year-old North Side man has been arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving, police have confirmed. Denvil Roy Mitchell, who worked at the NRA, died following a collision on Shamrock Road in Savannah Sunday evening when his motorcycle was hit by a Burgundy KIA Sportage near to the Countryside Shopping plaza. When police and emergency services responded to the fatal crash at around 8pm, Mitchell was taken to the George Town hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the KIA was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and causing death by dangerous driving, and is currently in police custody.
Mitchell is the second person to lose his life on Cayman’s roads this year. Ethel Venola Ebanks (86) died on the Stake Bay Road, Cayman Brac, last month after her car crashed into a light pole when she lost control of her car exiting a supermarket car park.
