Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — A truck carrying a large load of sargassum from the Puerto Morelos beach area overturned Wednesday. The driver of the truck somehow lost control of his unit and toppled onto his side.
Transit Officers were sent to the scene of the 2:30 p.m. accident where they located the overturned unit on Ruta de los Cenotes. Since the vehicle is of public service, the report was dealt with by José Luis Chacón, the General Directorate of Public Services of Puerto Morelos.
Transit Officers directed traffic along the roadway while the truck was eventually righted and the sargassum cleared. The driver of the truck was not injured. Driver error and not a mechanical issue has been the said cause of the accident.
