Careless merge said cause of bus-car crash outside Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A Saturday afternoon accident along the Cancun-Playa del Carmen highway left one with minor injuries and two vehicles with damage. According to police data, a bus and car collided after the driver of the bus failed to take precaution when merging.

That lead to the bus crashing with a private vehicle. A woman inside the car received only minor injuries and was treated by medical personnel on site. The car, however, was demolished in the accident.

Police, ambulance and elements of the National Guard responded to the accident scene that left traffic backed up as travelers began arriving for Semana Santa.
