Severely backed up traffic result of Puerto Morelos highway accident

Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — A lengthy line of backed up traffic was the effect of a two vehicle crash along a section of Puerto Morelos highway. On Wednesday afternoon, a small cargo vehicle and large garbage truck collided.

The accident happened just outside the town of Puerto Morelos that left at least two vehicles heavily damaged. Transit officials arrived to a roadway mess after the garbage truck plowed through a section of central highway median, breaking the concrete and downing a light pole that also left broken glass scattered over the road.
