Dozing driver flips passenger van outside Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The driver of a passenger van was left shocked Thursday morning after overturning his unit along the highway. The unidentified driver found himself on the roof of his van after losing control and flipping over near Xel-Há park outside Playa del Carmen.

According to preliminary reports, the driver fell asleep at the wheel which caused him to swerve. He made contact with the center median, and, due to the high rate of speed, toppled his unit.

He was the only person inside the van at the time of the roll. Elements of the Quintana Roo Police and firefighters arrived to help the driver.
