53 killed in road accidents

According to the BBC, citing Mexican government authorities, most of the victims are expecting immigration from Central America. The crash happened in the country’s Chiapas province on Thursday, local time.

The province of Chiapas, on the border with Guatemala, is a major transit point for illegal immigrants, the BBC reports. Meanwhile, Reuters reported that the accident took place when a carved van carrying the migrants fell off the road.

The death toll is expected to rise as several people are admitted to various local hospitals with serious injuries. Authorities also say most of the immigrants are Honduran nationals. They all wanted to enter the United States.

The country’s fire brigade’s main news agency told Reuters the dead included men, women and children. Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez described Obrador’s accident as “extremely painful.” He wrote on Twitter that he was “deeply sorry for the accident”.
