    A man is fighting for his life and another man’s life has been severely affected yet here commenters are arguing about grammar. Wow!

    • The Punctuator says:

      Could have used a comma after “affected”.

        You could use a good kick in the ass. Maybe if you had been the one with the man’s blood all over your hands and clothes from trying to save his life you would not be so coy and arrogant, but somehow I doubt it……..and before you put your foot FURTHER in your in mouth, yes I do feel justified in this comment as I was indeed on the scene doing all I could to make sure the elderly man survived.

        Have a safe week and God bless you.

    What wrong with Cayman is too many jamacian drivers

    I was driving home yesterday at the speed limit and some guy comes up behind me and honks because apparently the speed limit was too slow for him. I had my window down and hear his Jamaican accent so I slowed to 10 below the limit on a road he couldn’t pass me. He ended up turning into Wendy’s. He must have worn his horn out, sucked to be him.

    This is a very sad situation for both the driver of the car and the victim involved….no one but God knows what really happened. However there are numerous questions that come to mind.
    1. Was the driver distracted by the use of a cell phone at the time the accident occurred?
    2. Was the driver distracted by other occupants in the car?
    3. Did the victim walk out into the flow of traffic?
    4. What speed limit was the car travelling at when the accident occurred? Honestly speaking by the looks of the damage to the car I would say that the driver was traveling at a very high speed. It almost looks like the damage would be from an animal eg. horse or cow not a human being!
    5. Was the driver of the car tested for DUI?
    6. Were there any witnesses?

    Having said all of the above let’s pray all persons involved especially for the victim who remains in hospital fighting for his life.

      Huh?

      These drivers are so reckless when they get behind the wheel. They speed up right behind the car in front them. They seemed annoyed is you are within the speed limit. Punch punks! A lot of thes many drivers that have no respect for themselves, because if you don’t care about yourself , they won’t care about anyone else.

      Sorry to say but your eyes need examination

      When roads are wet, we need extra care, friends. Slowdown.

      My sympathy to the victim — by the looks of the damage to the car and reports of life threatening injuries, it will be a long road to recovery. Very sad for this man.

      Based on you grammar and spelling I will venture a guess that you are part of the 4.9% mentioned in the earlier CNS story.
