Four deceased in a traffic accident in Villa Clara

Four people died this Saturday in a traffic accident in Villa Clara, at kilometer 306 of the national highway in the Placetas-Fomento section. The event occurred when a tourist rental vehicle and a Chevrolet machine collided.

The car was traveling from Havana to Camagüey with four passengers when it entered the opposite lane to avoid a speed bump and collided with the machine, which was heading to the capital with one passenger.

Three passengers in the car died at the scene, while the fourth died at the Arnaldo Millán Castro hospital. The fatal victims are Roxana Castillo Frometa, 20 years old and pregnant; Reinier Pavón Cabrera, 32 years old; Ángel Cecilio Rivero Pérez, 53 years old, and Orlando Rodríguez Hernández, 55 years old. All of them from the province of Camagüey.

The injured, who are hospitalized with minor injuries, are also from Camagüey and both were driving the vehicles involved. They are Silverio Espino Castro, 61, driver of the machine, and Héctor García Martínez, 40, and driver of the touring car.

In the page From Facebook Accidentes buses & trucks, a woman said that the father of her nephews was one of the deceased and that he had gone to the airport to say goodbye to his wife and children and took the car to return home.

On that same page, a new accident with a deceased person is reported, a 24-year-old woman who lost her life this Sunday on the Mar Verde highway, in Santiago de Cuba. According to the testimonies of acquaintances, the event occurred when the young woman tried to avoid an animal that crossed the road, although there are no official details of the accident.

Last March, the National Road Safety Commission warned that during the past year 70% of Cuban provinces increased in accidents, due in part to an increase in motorcycles that can cause more traffic accidents. In 2021 there were 8,369 of these events that left 589 dead and 5,859 injured.

The authorities once again attribute responsibility to the human factor, which is responsible for 94.2% of accidents while “only 5.8% was due to technical failure.” However, the error persists of ignoring that a modern vehicle and healthy roads minimize accidents and, consequently, victims.
