Driver escapes after truck topples, catches fire on Cancun roadway

Cancun, Q.R. — A truck that overturned Tuesday evening on a Cancun roadway quickly caught fire and burned, leaving its driver to run for cover.

The accident happened on avenida José López Portillo when the driver was speeding and miscalculated a move that saw his small truck topple onto its side. The vehicle burst into flames almost instantly, but not before the driver was able to escape unharmed.

Although firemen arrived, the truck was reduced to its metal frame.
