Four injured after truck overturns at Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — A vehicle rollover Saturday night outside Puerto Morelos has left substantial material damages and four injured.

The tipping of the truck happened along the Cancun-Puerto Morelos stretch of highway near Crococun when a truck transporting slabs of marble overturned. The rollover was the result of a faulty axle that allegedly caused a rear tire to burst.

Numerous slabs of the marble cracked, with several pieces falling on the legs of those helping to transport the slabs.

Paramedics arrived at the scene to care for the injured.
