Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — Speed is a said factor in the overturning of a utility vehicle in Puerto Morelos. Saturday morning commuters were left to go around the truck they came upon laying in the center of the Federal 307.
It was just before 7:00 a.m. when motorists phoned in the accident. National Guard Highways arrived at the Puerto Morelos scene near Crococun. The 46-year-old driver Timoteo “V” was found sitting outside his unit unharmed.
He was heading toward the town of Puerto Morelos when he toppled his vehicle. The canopied truck landed on its side in the middle of a straight stretch of highway blocking two lanes. The top heavy truck is believed to have fallen over due to speed as he swerved in and out of traffic.
A tow truck was called to remove the Toyota Hilux from the center of the busy highway which added to the early morning congestion.
