Inside the unit, there were bottles of alcohol and cans of beer, and that based on the statements he issued, he stated that the light of a vehicle blinded him so he invaded the lane and collided head-on with the taxi in charge of the now deceased.
As a result of the impact, the taxi was off the road and the driver was pressed, even the firefighters had to use “the jaws of life” to rescue the body.
Onboard the taxi were two people from Cuncunul, the other was injured, the events shocked the population of that town.
Suaste Gutiérrez was placed at the disposal of the police, he was arrested for 36 hours, and later joined his activities as head of the general direction of Icatey, as if nothing had happened.
