(CNS): Police are making an appeal for two drivers and a pedestrian who may have seen the fatal collision between a school bus and a motorcycle on Shamrock Road Monday morning at around 7:00. Officers said that while they want to hear from any witnesses, they are keen to speak to the drivers of two cars travelling in opposite directions who stopped to let the school bus exit onto Shamrock Road from Mimosa Drive, and a woman who was standing at the intersection when the smash happened.

Shaun Ryan Newell (35), a Jamaican national living in Cayman, was riding the motorbike when he was killed in the crash. A 39-year-old man from Bodden Town who was driving the empty school bus has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving. He has been granted bail as investigations continue.

The police have also confirmed that the man who died in a hit-and-run on Anton Bodden Drive in Bodden Town on Sunday night was Henry Schucair Robinson (65), who lived in the district. Police are also appealing for witnesses to this incident.

Meanwhile, the pedestrian who was knocked down in George Town at 11:30pm on Sunday, 24 November, is still in hospital but his injuries have been confirmed to be non-life-threatening. He is expected to be discharged shortly. A 37 year old driver who remained at the scene in that case was arrested for DUI and has since been bailed.

Anyone with information on either of the fatal collisions is asked to contact the Traffic and Roads Policing Unit at 649-6254 or 924-1071.

    It’s inconceivable that school buses don’t have dash cams. In fact they should have several cameras to make sure kids aren’t in blind spots.
    When tendering for contracts the department of education must really insist that the bus providers get into the 21st century and provide such safety and accountability systems.

      And who exactly is going to pay for these upgrades?

        quite obviously the people providing these services.

        You know that dashcams cost less than $100 in many cases?

        Also, black box technology is fitted to many vehicles in Europe, commercial vehicles, new drivers etc. The savings for an insurance company are massive if the data proves their vehicle is not at fault and was being driven safely.

    For a small country we have far too many fatal hit and runs, shame on these cowardly citizens.

      Can the government be held accountable to the citizens/taxpayers-for their useless expenditure? Or, let the scammers provide CCTVs that work. Too many crooks around.
