Cancun bus rear ends combis killing one in crosswalk

Cancun, Q.R. — One person died and several were injured when a bus collided with two Urvans on Tulum Avenue in Cancun.

The fatal crash occurred at 9:00 a.m. between a large Turicun public bus and two combi vans.

Preliminary reports say the driver of the bus did not stop in time when the two combi vans were stopped at a pedestrian crossing. The bus ended up colliding with the combis, projecting one of them forward into the crosswalk.

From that projection, one male person in the crosswalk was hit and killed instantly.
