Tulum driver ends up in CAPA excavation pit

Tulum, Q.R. — Police and a tow truck were requested at the scene of an odd accident in Tulum Monday night.

Both were responding to the report of a car driving into an excavation pit. The hole was dug by the Potable Water and Sewerage Commission (CAPA) at the entrance to the Las Palmas subdivision.

While the car’s driver was traveling along 10th Street, they ended up in the hole. The unidentified driver was able to get out and was not hurt. However, the car did require assistance.

Area neighbors watched as the car was eventually removed from the pit. There was no word on damage or possible charges.

Last June, another vehicle had to be removed from an excavation pit after the driver ended up at its bottom. A woman ended up driving her ATV into a three-meter-deep open hole that had been dug outside a Tulum hotel to replace a damaged sewage line.
