Driver crashes into parked truck trying to avoid check stop

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A Playa del Carmen motorist who attempted to flee police crashed into a parked truck, destroying the entire front of his vehicle.

The incident was reported around 2:30 a.m. in the Pescadores neighborhood when the vehicle was signaled by police to pull over. However, instead of pulling over, the driver accelerated in an attempt to avoid the check stop.

His vehicle ended up in the rear end of a parked construction truck. The SUV was a write off. Police had it towed to the corralón, while the motorist was arrested and turned over to the State Attorney General’s Office for the damage caused.
