The truck was traveling from South to North on Calle 50 when suddenly the tires skidded on the pavement as a result of the rain, and the unit veered off the street abruptly.

“Thank God there was no one at the bus stop”, said the driver.

Agents of the SSP went immediately to the place; where representatives of the bus driver’s union also arrived.

The bus belongs to the “Alianza de Camioneros” union, which will respond for the damages caused by the vehicle.
