Dozing driver heading for Tulum falls off Puerto Aventuras overpass

Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — Police and National Guard were at the scene of a semi crash at the Puerto Aventuras overpass Monday. The semi was found laying on its side on the side street below after “falling off” the bridge.

The unidentified driver is alleged to have dozed at the wheel while entering the overpass. His doze caused him to swerve off the overpass and on the street below.

The single vehicle accident happened around 6:30 a.m. Monday. Paramedics located the driver unharmed aside from a few minor bumps and bruises.

The road was shut while authorities deal with the overturned unit and spilled fluids due to the overpass topple.
