Why the accidents in the periphery of Mérida?

The high speed and recklessness of guiders is the leading cause of accidents.

At least today, fortunately for the guides involved, there were no injured people.

At the site, it was found that the first vehicle collision occurred at kilometer 28, in the interior body, at the height of the Santa Gertrudis Copó bridge.

Three vehicles were involved there, but they were crossed in the center lanes and that caused a line of cars to form.

Drivers driving at high speed when they reached the top of the bridge were suddenly with the other vehicles and this led to a second accident, now involving six vehicles.

The line became longer, almost four kilometers, and on the bridge located at the height of 32nd street or García Lavín avenue, another four events were registered, one of three vehicles, another of four, one more than six and the fourth of eight cars.
