National Guard attend to semi rollover in Felipe Carrillo Puerto

Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Q.R. — Elements of the National Guard Highways were at the scene of a semi rollover Friday in Felipe Carrillo Puerto. The semi was located on its side in a ditch approximately six kilometers from the town.

The driver of the semi was taken to hospital for medical attention due to injuries sustained from the rollover. He was reportedly assisted by passing motorists who transferred him to the General Hospital of Felipe Carrillo Puerto.

National Guard Highways were left to guard the scene while waiting for a tow truck. It is not clear how the driver lost control and landed his unit in the highway ditch.

The large unit was found completely off the road. Highway traffic heading toward the town of Santa Amalia was not affected by the afternoon accident.
