Cancun, Q.R. — A Cancun taxi driver was taken to hospital in serious condition after being hit by an SUV that landed the unit on its roof. The accident happened along 135 Avenue around 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, when the driver of the compact car was slammed into by an oncoming SUV after he failed to stop at a marked intersection.
Witnesses told responding police officers that the taxi driver ignored a marked stop sign and proceeded through the intersection, which is when he was hit in the driver’s door by the fast moving SUV.
Due to the speed of the second vehicle, the taxi was rolled. The driver of the cab, Leonardo N and a colleague passenger, were transferred to hospital by paramedics.
