High speed U-turn tips Cancun cement truck

Cancun, Q.R, — Speed has been given as the reason a loaded cement truck overturned on a roadway in Cancun Tuesday.

The driver of the loaded cement truck was attempting a U-turn at a high speed along José López Portillo in Cancún when his truck tipped and fell to the left.

Firemen were called to the scene to deal with the large diesel spill from the vehicle. A portion of the truck’s wet mixed cement also leaked onto the roadway.

An ambulance arrived, however, the driver was reported to have suffered only minor injuries.

Police from la Dirección de Tránsito del Ayuntamiento de Benito Juárez were also there, as was a large tow truck to eventually right and remove the cement truck.

Traffic was closed while the mess was cleaned up.
