Trailer catches fire after collision at Puerto Aventuras

Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — A trailer caught fire after colliding with a compact car along the Puerto Aventuras highway Saturday.

The accident reportedly occurred when one of the vehicles attempted to avoid a group of cyclists on the highway. Preliminary reports say that in an attempt to avoid cyclists along the side of the road, the compact car involved in the accident suddenly braked, causing the trailer behind to collide.

Both vehicles left the highway and ended up in the green area. The trailer, however, managed to make contact with the overhead electric lines, which caused it to catch fire.

Members of the fire department arrived but were unable to extinguish the burning vehicle. Although there were no injuries reported in the accident, the trailer burned and was complete loss.
