Speeding car leaves Playa del Carmen bus overturned

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A bus was left resting on its side early Saturday morning after it was sideswiped by a fast moving car. The accident happened at the intersection of Avenue Xcalacoco and the federal highway when, reports say, the driver of a speeding Audi collided with the bus.

The impact of that hit was strong enough to overturn the bus, leaving it on its side in the middle of the intersection. Witnesses to the accident made the report to authorities who arrived to find no serious injuries, however, they did find that the driver of the Audi had fled.

The bus was not carrying any passengers at the time of the accident. The two staff aboard the bus were treated on site for minor injuries and did not require a hospital transfer.
