After the airbag went off the man was trapped inside the car, unable to open either door.

Fire fighters using specialist tools managed to open the car and free the man.

He was taken to Faith Hospital but later airlifted him to George Town. Suffering from breaks to his hip, knee and toe.

A spokeswoman for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said: “It appeared the driver, a 47 yr old local resident, who was traveling in a westerly direction veered off the roadway and hit a Tree. The vehicle received extensive damages.”

Meanwhile in a separate incident in West Bay a woman also remains in hospital after she fell from a two-storey balcony.

Elsewhere over the weekend police were called to a building fire to the rear of the Reflections Liquor for Less Outlet off Shedden Road and Sound Way junction in George Town.

A wooden structure at the rear of the shop was well alight when officers arrived. Firefighters were called and managed to dampen the flames.

Although no one was inside at the time of the fire in the early hours of Saturday morning, police
are investigating.

And on Saturday morning on duty officers chased a man they spotted checking parked vehicles at the Green Thumb Nursery.
