Illegal u-turn leaves motorcyclist with head injuries

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A motorist in mid u-turn is alleged responsible for an accident between himself and a motorcyclist. The accident occurred around noon on the El Tintal-Playa del Carmen highway near the Villas del Sol subdivision.

The driver of a private vehicle is said to have pulled a u-turn rather than use a designated retorno, which caused him to face the wrong direction, which is when the motorcycle collided with his car.

The car received a fair bit of damaged on its left side from the impact. The driver of the motorcycle, a tortilla delivery man, was tossed from his bike. He was attended to by paramedics for head injuries.

Municipal Traffic officers arrived and requested a tow truck to transfer both units to Public Safety.
