Following too close blamed for five car crash outside Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — A highway crash outside Puerto Morelos that began with two vehicles ended up involving five. The multi-car crash happened shortly after 10:00 p.m. Monday night when a combi slammed into the back of a military jeep.

The collision of those two vehicles caused three more vehicles to become involuntarily involved. Police arrived at the scene along the federal 307 where personnel from the Traffic Directorate began the task of determining what happened.

Drivers involved said that the collision occurred because the second vehicle, the transport van, was following too closely behind the military unit. That crash then caused three other oncoming vehicles to hit the two that were already involved.

One person from the five-car crash was transferred to a private hospital with undisclosed injuries.
