Playa del Carmen taxi driver flees after overturning vehicle

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A taxi ended up on its roof over the weekend after the driver bounced off a residential sidewalk. The accident was recorded along 10th Avenue when the Lázaro Cárdenas del Río taxi driver swerved and bounced off a sidewalk.

Due to the speed at which he was traveling, the contact he made with the sidewalk caused his unit to overturn. The taxi landed on its roof. Reports say the two inside fled the scene. A small cooler containing fresh ice and empty beer cans were located inside the overturned vehicle.
