Distracted dump truck driver causes 2 car crash

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A weekend accident left two cars destroyed along with city property after a dump truck driver became distracted. The accident happened at the intersection of CTM avenue with 130 in the Cruz de Servicios area.

Reports say the driver of the truck, who was traveling along CTM, failed to notice a car in front had slowed upon reaching the intersection. The truck driver ended up slamming into the car, which then slammed into a parked taxi.

The dump truck driver continued forward, crashing into a light fixture and a palm tree before finally coming to a stop.

An ambulance, who was passing through the area, stopped to assess the family traveling in the silver car. Fortunately only material damage was noted in all three vehicles.
