Tragic Accident at San Miguel Toll Booth Leads to Delays and Fatalities

Ensenada, April 19, 2024 – A severe car accident occurred at the San Miguel toll booth on the toll road in Ensenada this Friday, causing significant delays and a fatality.

Early reports suggest that the accident was caused by a driver who, traveling from north to south, allegedly fell asleep at the wheel. The vehicle, under the driver’s control, collided at high speed with the structure of the San Miguel toll booth.

Tragically, the collision resulted in the immediate death of the 27-year-old driver. Another individual was injured in the incident, although it remains unclear whether this person was a passenger in the same vehicle or was involved in one of the three other cars affected by the crash.

The accident led to extensive traffic jams, with wait times reaching up to three hours for vehicles attempting to pass through the toll booth. Given that this is a federal highway, the National Guard was on the scene to manage the aftermath of the crash. Unfortunately, they have not released any official statements regarding the details of the incident as of yet.

Further updates will be provided as more information becomes available. Drivers are advised to stay informed and exercise caution when traveling through major toll points.
