According to the police report, Transporte Terrestre Estatal (TTE) combi driver Kevin N, lost control on a curve due to a combination of speed and wet roads while traveling along Avenida Los Tules around 9:10 a.m. His vehicle left the road and climbed a median where he then slammed into a tree.

The exterior of the driver’s door was sheared from the van, while the front was also heavily damaged. Inside the unit, passengers Marcela N, 35 years old and Jessica N, 27, were injured. They were transferred to hospital by paramedics.
