Attempt to enter fast lane goes wrong for Playa del Carmen driver

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A Playa del Carmen highway accident left a man trapped inside his vehicle, but with only minor injuries. The accident happened Sunday afternoon along Playa del Carmen Boulevard when a compact car tried to enter the fast lane.

The small car was hit by an oncoming SUV, which threw his car into a light standard. The driver inside the compact unit was unable to get out. Rescue team firemen were called to remove him from the front seat of the car. The driver from the second vehicle was also assessed. Neither suffered serious injuries.

The second vehicle, the SUV, was also damaged, but not to the same extent as the compact car, which was deemed a complete write off. Both vehicles were eventually towed to the corralón.
