    I just wish these young men a full speedy recovery. More prayers are needed here, instead of blasphemy towards one another. Accidents could happen to anyone, and these young men are someone’s child, someone’s brother, uncle. Nephew, you name it, so please stop hating and start loving and respecting each other. May God bless them both and keep them close to his heart.

        TO 9:40am where I know gramma isn’t what this post is about, you seriously need to go back to school to learn how to right proper English. You are a prime example of the poor education the schools in cayman are offering…..hey Tara look at this post and realize this is the majority of what is coming out of the schools.

          I agree but I have to assume you are just being sarcastic when you spell grammar as ‘gramma’ and write as ‘right’

            The person who hit ‘dislike’ is either 9.40 am poster himself/herself, a simple ‘troll’ or someone who just doesn’t have enough intelligence to realize that there was absolutely nothing to ‘dislike’ in 9.20am’s post today.Use a bit of sense before just hitting a dislike or troll key because you make it clear that you have no rationale whatsoever. Still, I guess it’s your prerogative!

        Robert; I’m young, you’re “old” and hey, I don’t get it either. It took me years to learn what “LOL” meant….

        I hate the new generational dysfunctional English; oops, gibberish!

    The Spotts raceway is one of the most dangerous stretches of road in the country. The genius that made the double lane set up racing.

    You all better the facts straight because it never happen like that also one of those guys that is critical is about 40 years old and also if you know anything about Toyota terecel they aren’t very ????

  7. A driver says:

    Investigation will hopefully show if speed and/or maybe distracted driving played a role.
    I hope both recover from this accident. I nearly smashed into a mini bus in the same area this afternoon. One has to wonder how they get away with stopping in a 40mi zone to pick someone up or as seen before even reverse. If there would have been a car in the right lane, I would be the headline tomorrow..

      And Police usually just drive on by when illegal unsafe driving taking place…

      If there was a stationary vehicle in your lane and you had to swerve into the right hand lane to avoid it… you were going too fast!!!!! Your fault, not theirs!!!!

    How many thousands of CUC light poles have been flattened in single car crashes here in Cayman?. The standard of driving in this part of the world is appalling – they manage to do this without any steep hills, snow, or black ice.

    Seems like young Caymanian men are in a race to see who can die the youngest. Sad.
