Cancun, Q.R. — A clash between two public transport combis on a busy Cancun street has left at least seven with injuries. The clash happened Tuesday morning around 10:00 a.m. along Kabah Avenue.

Witnesses to the two-combi crash requested emergency services which saw the arrival of police and ambulances. A total of 10 passengers were injured, however, only seven were transferred to hospital for medical care. The remaining three were treated on site.

A passenger van from Maya Caribe and another from the State Terrestrial Transportation service (TTE) were involved in the accident. One vehicle ended up crashing into a metal sign in the roadway’s median, while the second van ended up crashed into the front of a store.

Agents from the Secretary of Public Security and Traffic arrived to clear up the mess. Traffic agents said both drivers, 43-year-old Carlos C and 46-year-old Lorenzo G, claimed a green light at the same intersection.
