Cancun bicyclist hit by taxi then run over by tour bus

Cancun, Q.R. — A Cancun man who was hit by a taxi then run over by a large tour bus has been taken to hospital.

Witnesses hailed down passing police in the city’s center Friday around 6:15 p.m. after seeing a man on a mountain bike get hit by a taxi. The taxi hit the bicycle, sending the rider to the ground when the man’s arm was then run over by a passing bus.

The accident took place on José López Portillo Avenue when police reportedly approached a man who was the rider of the hit mountain bike. When they arrived, they found the man lying in the street next to an Autotour bus, which had driven over the man’s extended arm.

The Cancun man, suffering from a crushed arm, was rushed to hospital by ambulance. Witness said that the man was initially hit by a taxi from the Andrés Quintana Roo Syndicate. The hit projected the man in the path of the oncoming bus.

The taxi driver reportedly fled the scene.
