Tragic accident on Mérida-Progreso Highway

A tragic car accident took place in the Mérida-Progreso highway on Monday, January 26th, where a man’s body was completely shattered after being ran over by several cars .

The tragedy took place on Kilometer 24 of this highway; around 11PM that night, according to the investigations.

The victim was apparently riding a bike when he was impacted by a motor vehicle, his body remained lying on the asphalt, and the lack of illumination boosted several run overs by passing cars.


The man was wearing blue jeans, a blue shirt and tennis shoes, but due to the severe damage caused by the accident, the recognition process couldn’t be conclusive.

Authorities from the public health secretary, as well as both regional and federal police reached the area for further recognition and verbal statements demands as soon as they were notified.

The unfortunate biker has become the first fatal victim of the Mérida-Progreso highway in 2015.
