While images were known of how they rescued the injured from the crash on Route 2, at the height of Chascomús, this morning the grandfather of the 4-month-old baby who died in the sinister road spoke. Visibly shocked by the news, he said police officers “told me they are working” to determine how the accident happened.
“I’m destroyed, that’s the only thing I can tell you,” said the man who identified himself as Ricardo. He added that “it is not known what happened, I just want to get to see my son and my daughter-in-law”, who are admitted to the hospital in that town along with the couple’s other son, aged 6 years. “I don’t know how you are, I know the same as you,” he said.
Ricardo assured in a press conference where EL DIA was present that the couple “is settling in Mar del Tuyú”, and that was the reason for the trip. “I do not know if my son has both legs, if he is cut in two. I do not know anything. Only that they are still in the Hospital de Chascomús,” he said.
It should be remembered that it was a multiple crash that occurred this morning at kilometer 96, where the 4-month-old baby died and also left 5 injured, as confirmed by the police report and the Fire Chief of that town. AUBASA reported that it should have established a total cut off of that highway, in the direction of CABA, since the police experts were working. That is why a detour is made by contra lane from kilometer 96 to 97.
As this newspaper reported earlier, everything happened around 4 in the morning when, for reasons that are being established, three vehicles collided. Among them a truck that transported beer and a school transport, which at the time of the collision did not carry children.
The crash would have originated at a time when the minibus was on the shoulder with the beacons on and was hit by the larger vehicle. The strong impact caused a gray Dodge Journey truck to be attacked, where a family was on board and it was the one that took the worst part since a 4-month-old baby lost his life. Meanwhile, the school bus driver was transferred to La Plata.
As this newspaper learned, there are another 5 injured, who had to be transferred to the Chascomús hospital. The truck driver was in serious condition as a result of the injuries he suffered and they also had to work for two hours to be able to rescue him from the iron. Later it was learned that he had a lower limb fracture and multiple injuries. Now a case has been opened for “Wrongful death and wrongful injuries” and is investigated by Dr. Jonatan Robert of UFI No. 10 of Chascomús.
