The driver of a trailer that caused a tragic accident last Wednesday, which left 10 dead and 16 injured, was driving under the influence of drugs and speeding, authorities from the state of Chihuahua, northern Mexico, said Friday. Due to this, the driver will be accused of the alleged commission of the crimes of homicide, injuries, and damage to health.
Last September 7, around midnight, the fatal incident occurred at a food stall, in the municipality of Villa Ahumada, in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. According to versions, the accident was caused by the cargo trailer, which lost control and ended up impacting several premises and vehicles that were parked in that place.
According to a statement from the Attorney General of the State of Chihuahua, the driver of the unit that caused the mishap “tested positive for drug use” and added that, in the next few hours, he will be charged with the crimes of homicide, injuries and health damage.
The drug test of the driver, identified by the media as Saúl AD, 44, was positive for methamphetamines and amphetamines, in addition to the fact that a wrapper with a portion of glass was secured at the time of his arrest.
A source close to the FGE said, unofficially, that the heavy unit had an insurance policy issued by the Qualitas insurance company, which is the one that will be responsible for the damage and deaths in the incident.
In addition, the Prosecutor’s Office indicated that there are six lawsuits filed by the same number of people who were injured, who are waiting for the date and time to be set for the initial hearing to formulate charges.
The Prosecutor’s Office also indicated that the 10 fatalities have already been identified and their bodies have already been delivered to their families and, so far, only three people remain hospitalized.
According to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi), in 2021 there were 32 land accidents in this region of Mexico, of which 15 events reported loss of life and the rest only damage.
