Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — One dead and others reported injured in a late night two car crash outside Puerto Morelos. Emergency responders had a section of the highway closed to traffic while they cleared the scene.

Puerto Morelos firemen were requested to remove trapped people from inside one of the cars. According to available information, the accident happened on the federal highway in Puerto Morelos Thursday night when one car crashed into the back of another.
