Young Cancun city bus driver smashes into five vehicles

Cancun, Q.R. — A public transportation bus that runs the popular R-1 route in Cancun collided with five vehicles Friday.

The collision occurred in the back parking area of the Cancun Convention Center Friday at 8:30 a.m. after the bus apparently skidded into the vehicles. The Cancun traffic office said that the driver of the bus, a 21-year-old male, failed to take the wet roads into consideration.

With a combination of speed and fresh rain, the bus rammed into five vehicles before coming to a stop. Although there were no injuries, all five vehicles were damaged. The bus also completely destroyed city property including a guardrail, retaining wall and a light pole.
