On the first day of the Easter vacation, a serious car accident on the Mérida-Valladolid highway in the state of Yucatán ended the life of a woman and left three minors seriously injured.

According to authorities, the accident occurred around midday this Saturday, on the Kantunil-Holcá stretch. At kilometer 77, the vehicle in which the family was traveling had a head-on collision with another vehicle and ended up overturned off the road.

Elements of the National Guard (GN) arrived at the scene to interrupt traffic, as well as paramedics and firefighters from the state’s Public Safety Secretariat (SSP), who freed two people who were pinned and gave them first aid along with the others at the site.

Due to the seriousness of the injuries of the three minors – two teenage girls and a boy, all of them siblings – the support of the Bell-427 and Bell-429 helicopters of the State Government was required to transport them to a hospital of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) in Merida.

Five other injured persons were taken by ambulance by land. However, a woman, driver of one of the two vehicles involved in the accident and mother of the children, died at the scene.

“Unfortunately three minors suffered serious injuries in a vehicular accident on the #Kantunil-#Holcá highway. In support of them and their families, they were transferred aboard two @sspyuc helicopters to #Mérida for immediate attention. We hope for their speedy recovery,” Governor Mauricio Vila wrote on his Twitter account.

As of 5:30 p.m., the National Guard reported on social networks that there was still a partial traffic closure on the Kantunil-Chichén Itzá stretch, and asked motorists to take precautions.
