Semi overturns outside Playa del Carmen to avoid passenger van

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — A semi trailer overturned on the highway exiting Playa del Carmen after the driver reportedly swerved to miss a passenger van.

The large semi overturned on the highway near the Blue Bay Hotel and was left blocking several lanes of traffic. Reports say the driver of the semi was made to swerve after a passenger van recklessly invaded his lane.

The truck driver said he was heading toward Cancun when the van suddenly appeared in his lane. In an attempt to avoid hitting the van, the semi driver swerved, which caused him to lose control and overturn, skidding nearly 100 meters before coming to a stop.

There were no injuries.
