Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A National Guard patrol unit left one with injuries after it collided with a private vehicle on federal highway near Xcalacoco. The two vehicles collided after the driver of the private car failed to stop at a marked intersection.
The driver of the National Guard unit, who was part of a convoy transporting two prisoners, was hit by the compact car, which received a substantial amount of damage with a fully collapsed engine compartment. The National Guard truck was not as damaged.
While municipal police officers stayed at the scene of the accident, an ambulance arrived to attend to the injured driver of the compact car. The National Guard patrol, however, continued on its way, escorting the transfer of the inmates.
