Traffic accident in Peru

10.01.2013: A serious accident involving 3 vehicles occurred in Peru on Wednesday 9th January at 21.30 hours

A serious accident involving 3 vehicles occurred in Peru on Wednesday 9th January at 21.30 hours (Peru time), 10 kilometres from the border with Chile.


The accident involved a support vehicle with 3 passengers and two taxis, one of them carrying 6 people and the other with 4 people.


One of the two taxis collided head on with the support vehicle, and the second taxi overturned several times in an attempt to avoid the accident.


Unfortunately, two of the people in the first taxi – one of them the driver – died, and 7 others were injured (4 Peruvians and the 3 passengers in the support vehicle). They are being examined in hospitals in Tacna (Peru), where they were taken following the accident.


Assistance coordination has been put in place by the Peruvian authorities and the organisation of the rally, involving 3 local ambulances, a fire engine and several police officers. The organisation has also jointly deployed 2 paramedic ambulance vehicles from the rally and 2 security vehicles.


An Antonov aircraft of the Peruvian police has been put on special alert to transport the injured to Lima, in coordination with the rally’s medical service.


The Peruvian authorities have begun an inquiry into the accident in order to determine the exact causes.
