HAVANA: Five people, including a US citizen were killed and 33 others injured when a car collided with a truck carrying passengers in the central Cuban province of Sancti Spiritus, local media reported Monday.
The accident occurred Sunday as the car with five passengers hit a truck transporting 43 at kilometre 424 of Cuba's Central Highway, 223 miles east of Havana.
The victims were identified as Yoelis Borrero Jaime, 33, from Santiago de Cuba; brothers Maykel and Robin Rodriguez Lopez, 29 and 28, respectively, from Camaguey; Alvaro Goatherd Hernandez (27) from Havana; and US citizen Yonathan Carrasco, 26, according to a report by the state-run National Information Agency (AIN).
Among the injured were a three-year boy, who suffered serious head trauma, and a five-month-old girl, who also sustained head trauma, but to a lesser degree.
The report said authorities were still trying to determine the cause of the accident.
Traffic accidents are the fifth leading cause of death in Cuba, which registered 5,637 traffic accidents in the first half of the year, the highest number in 12 years.
Transit authorities introduced stiffer penalties in 2011 against drunk driving and speeding, in an effort to reduce the number of traffic fatalities on the nation's highways. Bernama
