Tourist dies from crashing ATV

Cozumel, Q.R. — A Mexican tourist was killed Monday evening after crashing the all-terrain vehicle he was driving.

Two national tourists were riding an ATV near San Martin Beach on the island of Cozumel at around 6:00 p.m. when the driver of the unit crashed. While the passenger suffered minor injuries after being thrown off the ATV, the driver was reported to have died instantly.

The pair was part of a tour group led by Delfines. Driving a red Suzuki ATV, the male driver lost control of his unit and crashed into a concrete highway barrier at great speed. His female passenger was sent to hospital and received only minor injuries.
