At the scene of the incident, it was said that the stake-type Nissan truck was circulating from south to north, while the gray Ford vehicle was traveling in the opposite direction, but as it was passing a long curve, one of the two vehicles invaded the opposite lane, causing the frontal collision, with the terrible results mentioned above.
Agents from the State Police, Firefighters from Ezequiel Montes and the municipality of Colón attended the scene, who were in charge of providing care to the wounded man, who was rescued from his truck and transferred to the General Hospital of Cadereyta de Montes, for prompt medical attention. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the driver of the Ford car, since he died instantly from the brutal crash.
The area was cordoned off by state and municipal police from Colón, awaiting the arrival of the competent authority, who would take charge of the situation.
