Cozumel tourists lose control, overturn jeep

Cozumel, Q.R. — A vehicle of Cozumel tourists managed to dump their jeep in the southern zone after losing control.

The incident happened around 11:00 a.m. at the height of the Cozumel Hotel and Resort when the red Jeep, being driven by a tourist, lost control and struck a palm tree. The vehicle landed on its roof in a weedy area along the side of the roadway.

While the driver managed to get out, his companion was trapped inside and required the assistance of authorities to be freed. An ambulance, firemen and police officers arrived at the scene of the wheels-up vehicle to attend to the pair as well as tip the vehicle back over.

The incident left only the trapped copilot with minor injuries.
