Cancun, Q.R. — The driver of a Volkswagen car was admitted to hospital after skidding along Kabah Avenue and crashing into several objects. The accident happened Sunday morning in Supermanzana 37.
Preliminary reports say that the driver of the compact car, 32-year-old Alfonso N, was driving at excessive speed in the heavy rain when the accident took place. The driver lost control and hit the road’s center median where it made contact with a light pole before slamming into a tree.
The light pole broke at its base and fell over, closing lanes in the opposite direction. Firemen were called to the scene to remove both the pole and the remains of the tree. While firemen worked at freeing closed lanes, an ambulance transferred the driver to hospital. His car was a total loss.
