10 Killed, 15 Wounded in Road Accident in Northeastern Mexico

MEXICO – Ten people were killed and 15 others injured on Wednesday when a passenger bus collided with a cargo trailer truck on a road in the state of Tamaulipas, northeast of Mexico, local officials reported Wednesday.

The Tamaulipas Civil Protection coordinator, Pedro Granados, told EFE that the accident took place around 7:00 pm local time (0000 GMT) on the Rumbo Nuevo road, which links the state’s capital of Ciudad Victoria with Jaumave municipality.

A passenger bus, leaving from the country’s capital and destined for Reynosa and previously making a stop in Ciudad Victoria, was hit by a trailer truck, killing nine people, including the drivers of both vehicles, and injuring 16 others.

Subsequently, one of the wounded died, elevating the death toll to 10 and lowering the number of the wounded to 15, sources from the Tamaulipas Prosecutor’s Office told EFE.

The injured have been transferred to several hospitals in the region and some are in serious condition, so the death toll could increase at any time, according to Granados.

“The trailer rolled over the asphalt, while the bus fell more than 50 meters off the cliff,” he added.

The Civil Protection coordinator said that the causes of the accident were still unknown, which led to the closing of the road for a couple of hours.
