Mérida, Yucatán, (July 17, 2021).- Five National Guard agents were injured when the car in which they were traveling overturned, on the Mérida-Campeche highway.

The accident occurred near the Kopomá junction, where a tire exploded on the Chevrolet Spark compact car in which the GN officers were traveling, all of them originally from Campeche.

When the tire burst, the 20-year-old M.J.C.P. driver lost control and went off the road, penetrating three meters into the undergrowth, where it was overturned on one of his sides.
