Rain and speed blamed for 10 car crunch in Cancun Hotel Zone

Cancun, Q.R. — A heavy rain combined with speed is being blamed for a 10 car pile up in the Cancun Hotel Zone. On Tuesday afternoon, Transit Officers were called to the scene of the car crunch at Kilometer 26 of the Hotel Zone.

There, nearly a dozen vehicles were found facing different directions on the same side of the road. According to preliminary information, the 5:00 p.m. Kukulcán Boulevard crash started after a passenger van skidded off the highway.

His leaving the road caused another nine, in a domino effect, to crash. The chain reaction started when the first vehicle tried to avoid the skidding van.
