Airbag space hid 25 kilograms of cocaine

Tamaulipas accident kills driver and passenger

Replacing the passenger-side airbag with a shipment of cocaine might have cost the passenger his life in an accident in Tamaulipas.

The car was reportedly traveling at an excessive speed on the Ciudad Victoria-Matamoros highway when the driver lost control and it overturned.

Although the driver’s side airbag deployed successfully, both he and the passenger died from their injuries en route to hospital.

When Federal Police arrived at the scene to investigate, they discovered 25 kilograms of cocaine hidden behind the dash where the airbag would have been.

The accident took place in the municipality of San Fernando.
