Motorcyclist dies after being hit by Xcaret staff bus in Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A motorcyclist has been killed after the driver of a staff bus for Xcaret hit and dragged him for nearly 500 meters.

The accident occurred around 5:00 a.m. Tuesday on avenue Paseo del Mayab in Playa del Carmen when the bus carrying Xcaret staff hit the motorcycle. Not realizing what had happened, the bus driver continued on, stopping only after two taxis blocked his way.

Two local taxi drivers, seeing the bus dragging the motorcycle, rushed ahead of the bus to block the street to prevent passage. That was when the discovery of the deceased was made.

Municipal and ministerial police arrived. The driver of the bus, Reyes Augusto M.O., was arrested. The deceased has been identified as Erick David M.A.
