“Rayando” – the Spanish word for weaving in and out traffic at high speeds – is said to have been the cause of death on Ruta 32, when a small vehicle with two passengers slammed into a bus and a tractor trailer. The vehicle was completely broken apart, the metal sheets shearing off the scalp of the woman passenger, Andrea Perez, 33. Dead also was her husband, Christian Mendez, 34.

The accident occurred at around 10:00am on a blind curve near Rio Sucio as the couple were headed back to Siquirres from San José.

Traffic on the 32 was backed up for kilometres in both directions, as the highway remained closed until after 4:00pm.

Angie Meneses, spokesperson for the Dirección General de Tránsito, says drivers lose patience on the Ruta 32, particularly through the section that weaves through the mountain and circulated by heavy truck and bus traffic, with few places to pass. There are few places to pass safely on the 32.

According to the Policia de Transito, 30 people lost their lives in traffic accidents in January, of which 11 for careless driving and speeding.

So far this month, including the two fatalities yesterday, the death toll is 13.
