Cayman News Service(CNS): A 52-year-old woman who was driving a Suzuki Cultus was trapped in her car Saturday evening following a head-on collision on Cayman Brac.

The woman was airlifted by Cayman Airways for treatment to the Health City Cayman Islands facility in East End, where she remains.

    I may have this wrong but I thought that Health City had no A and E. Also, GT hospital is closer to the airport so… why?

    Not sure what the nationalities of the drivers has to do with this. But to enlighten those who seem to think that it does matter. The female driver is of Jamaican nationality and the male driver is a Caymanian. Just saying.

      I am so disgusted by this obsession with nationality, even when it comes to car accidents. This is the most racist place ever.
