At least four soldiers injured in two truck accident at Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — At least four soldiers were injured in an accident that involved two military trucks. The accident happened on the Continental Mainland of Isla Mujeres Monday night.

Military personnel say both vehicles were traveling at a high rate of speed and without lights when the first miscalculated a curve, which resulted in him leaving the roadway and overturning. The second truck, following tightly behind the first, also left the roadway due to the sudden stop. It came to rest in jungle brush along Rancho Viejo Avenue.

Infantry elements from the military garrison arrived at the accident site along with police and paramedics. Several soldiers were assessed, but only four had injuries that required hospitalization.
