“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.

The officer said that after making a sketch of the accident, he went to Parrita’s clinic to ask about the driver’s state of health and there they informed him that Mora arrived in stable condition and was later taken to the Max Terán hospital in Quepos.
