Cancun, Q.R. — Police responded to an accident along the federal highway outside Cancun after reports by motorists. When they arrived, they located a white van wrapped around the base of a CFE pole.
Paramedics were part of the responding crew who arrived to attend to those from inside the vehicle. At the time of reporting, there was no information on the health status of the driver and passenger(s), if any.
According to preliminary information, the driver of the van suddenly lost control and swerved off the highway, slamming into the base of the concrete pole. The impact was enough to cause the pole to break.
Firemen, a person from Civil Protection and elements of the National Guard also arrived at the scene.
Last week, one man was found dead beside his car after wrapping it around the concrete base of a CFE pole outside Playa del Carmen. That accident reportedly happened in the night, but was not discovered until the next morning.
