Share This

What was supposed to be a holiday for a family from Tabasco,  became hell in a matter of seconds, when David Sandoval Ruizpérez was arrested for accidentally run over 69 year old Lucia Herrera Arana, on the corner of Paseo de Montejo and Calle 43.

The Sandoval Family declared that they came to Yucatan on vacation, and arrived in Merida two days ago, they visited the beach of Progreso, and had plans to go to other parts of the state and then head for Cancun.

On Tuesday April 22, around 8 am they visited the Cathedral, the Plaza Grande and the Government Palace. Shortly before 10, they decided to go for a walk on Paseo de Montejo.

In the corner of  Paseo de Montejo with Calle 43 ​​Sandoval found an empty space, stopped his Lincoln Navigator SUV and drove in reverse to park it, but he did not notice that at that exact moment, Lucia Herrera Arana got down the sidewalk, right behind his truck to cross the street.

The vehicle struck the woman, knocking her down to the pavement and the tires rolled over her head, crushing her skull and causing her death.

David Sandoval Ruizpérez was arrested by agents of the SSP and then turned over to the Prosecutor where he will be prosecuted for the offense of manslaughter.

Lucía Herrera was taken by paramedics to the CEMA (Centro Médico de las Américas), still breathing, but minutes later she died as a consequence of the head injuries.
