Share This

The driver of a tractor-trailer fell asleep while driving this heavy unit, causing its impact on the toll booth of the Guanajuato-Silao highway.

The incident occurred around 2:00 am on Wednesday May 25, when Victor Hugo of 25 years old and from the State of Mexico, fell asleep meters before reaching the toll booth direction of Guanajuato and crashed on the charging station.


There was a person working on the site but fortunately was able to leave the cabin before it was hit by the trailer of the brand “Ken Wood,” red, with license plates 001-EN-5, model 1989. The accident took part of a retaining wall and part of the rail.

The trailer was damaged across the front wheels on the right side and windshield glass.

After the strong impact Victor Hugo regained consciousness, however the trailer ended several meters ahead, and after the collision the tollbooth got the worst part, while the trailer ended up with minimum damage.

The tollbooth operator suffered a nervous breakdown after the incident, but no physical injuries.
