Puerto Morelos, Q.R. — The impact between a combi van and transport truck has left eight injured in the municipality of Puerto Morelos.
Preliminary reports say that the accident took place Friday morning after the combi van attempted to change direction along the highway, which is when it was broadsided by the oncoming cargo truck.
The transport van was pushed over onto its side, coming to a stop on the grassy roadside, while the cargo truck also tipped, landing on its passenger side. Both vehicles received extensive damage.
All six passengers inside the van were injured. They were seated along the roadside while ambulances arrived to transfer them to area hospitals.
The two men inside the cargo van reportedly received only minor injuries and did not require hospital treatment.
