Cancun, Q.R. — An accident on the access ramp to the Cancun International Airport left vehicles at a standstill and airport passengers walking to their terminals so as not to miss their flight.
The accident left traffic backed up for more than two hours in both directions while authorities dealt with the scene. Many impatient drivers decided to do a u-turn, however, that only generated additional traffic chaos in the opposite direction.
Details of the accident were not provided, only that traffic was left paralyzed more than a kilometer long with many passengers unloading from vehicles and pulling their luggage the remainder of the way to catch their flight.
