Cancun, Q.R. — Firemen were called to the scene of a single vehicle accident in SM 251 in Cancun Thursday after a van crashed into a building. Police responding to the accident report arrived to find the young male driver pinned behind the wheel.
The unidentified driver had both legs trapped between his seat and dashboard due to the severe front end impact of the van crashing against the concrete building. Firemen were called in to remove the man from his driver’s seat. Paramedics arrived at the Paseos del Mar scene where they stabilized the driver before transferring him to hospital.
Witnesses said the young driver of the public combi was speeding down Avenida República Dominicana when he suddenly lost control and slammed into the building. Police found the Maya Caribe public transport van had driven up over the sidewalk where it came to rest against the façade of a building.
