By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Mexican authorities have confirmed the deaths of 10 Cuban migrants after a cargo truck they were traveling in lost control and overturned.
According to Reuters, atleast 17 more were seriously injured in the accident in Chiapas on Sunday.
The highway is commonly used by migrants who cross into Mexico from Guatemala on their way north towards the United States.
After the accident, the driver of the truck fled the scene and reports indicate he was speeding and lost control.
Mexican Immigration authorities confirmed that among those dead was a child.
Road accidents involving migrants are not uncommon in Mexico, where many people crossing the country to the United States travel in unauthorized and poorly maintained vehicles.
