Authorities in Mexico have reported that at least 14 individuals lost their lives, with 31 others sustaining injuries in a tragic road accident on Sunday. 

The incident occurred in the state of Mexico, on the outskirts of the capital, when a bus overturned on the roadway, according to statements from the local safety secretariat.

“Preliminary figures put the death toll at 14, with a further 31 injured,” the same source said.

Road accidents in Mexico have seen an alarming increase since 2020, with a total of 377,231 claims recorded in 2022, as reported by the National Statistics Institute. This trend underscores the pressing need for improved road safety measures and awareness campaigns nationwide.

Tragic incidents like the one on February 24, where 10 individuals lost their lives in a traffic accident in the north-central state of San Luis Potosi, including four minors, highlight the devastating consequences of such accidents on families and communities.

Similarly, on Saturday, a distressing incident occurred in the southern state of Oaxaca, where a truck struck migrants on foot, resulting in the death of three individuals.

The driver responsible for this tragic event is still at large, as reported by local press sources.

These incidents underscore the urgent need for enhanced enforcement of traffic regulations and stricter penalties for reckless driving to prevent further loss of life on Mexico’s roads.
