Another tourist was killed Thursday morning in a scooter accident.
She was from Mississippi and apparently lost control in the north hotel zone and hit a pole. She was from a cruise ship.
Another reason why we say rent a car and avoid the scooters.
It was a bad day for traffic accidents in Cozumel. About 6 hours later, what is being called a tricycle, or I suppose an off road vehicle of some sort, was hit by a police vehicle responding to a call. This was on the transversal and apparently the vehicle entered for a side road with no lights. A family of four was aboard and the father and two children were killed and the mother hospitalized.
Be careful with any vehicle but especially avoid the scooters.Edited: 5:11 am, November 18, 2011
