Another motorcyclist, a foreigner who worked for Uber Eats, died after 2:09 am. The motorcycle apparently skidded and hit a ditch. The accident occurred in La Garita de Alajuela, from the rancho bar Monticel, towards Atenas.

The next death occurred after 02:30 am, when a group of paramedics found a man dead with several stab wounds in the chest. The incident occurred in Chomes de Puntarenas. The victim was not carrying identity documents.

At 03:36 am, in the La Liliana residential area, in San Francisco de Heredia, a driver lost his life after his car crashed head-on into a pole. The impac was so strong that some parts of the engine were thrown several meters away.

The Red Cross also reported that at 4:28 am they attended a case in the Mis Sueños condominium, in San Francisco de Heredia, where they found a lifeless man inside a house. It turned out that the victim had a significant chest wound, but the paramedics could not determine if it was caused by bullets or a knife.
