Four injured in Chetumal in two vehicle crunch

Chetumal, Q.R. — The driver of a private car is being blamed for a two vehicle crunch in Chetumal. Witnesses told police that the driver of the car failed to stop at a marked intersection.

He continued through, slamming into a public combi. Four passengers from inside the public transport unit were left injured. The car was a write off after hitting the side of the van at a high rate of speed.

Paramedics were at the intersection of Laguna Negra Street and Enrique Barrocio to attend to the injured. Chetumal firemen were requested to help remove the combi passengers who were found stuck inside the van.
