The driver of the catlle truck was not injured in the spectacular crash on the Parrita river bridge Friday night

“I think that this man who was injured what really saved his life was the pickup that he was driving, because it is a fairly strong vehicle, if it had been another type of vehicle, I don’t know if the same thing would have happened, rather than all because of the violence of the crash,” explained the uniformed official.

“At the moment it has not been determined how the accident occurred because in the place I did not find braking skids that would allow me to establish a dynamics of the accident, I just found the two vehicles crossed,” explained Mora.
