Pastry truck driver killed in highway accident outside Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — The driver of a company pastry cargo truck was killed Wednesday in a highway accident on the outskirts of Puerto Morelos. The driver died after his small unit was crushed by a large dump truck at highway speed.

The impact turned the cargo truck onto its side, partially bending it in half. Emergency services responding to the 2:40 p.m. accident arrived to find the truck was dragged for more than 15 meters before finally coming to rest.

According to preliminary reports, the driver of the pastry truck was attempting to pass a vehicle when he hit the dump truck head on. The driver of the dump truck was heading toward the town of Leona Vicario when it crashed into the company pastry truck.

The road was closed for more than an hour while authorities sorted out the collision.
