A traffic accident in Baja California Sur yesterday left seven people dead and another seriously injured.
State Civil Protection undersecretary Carlos Godínez León said the accident occurred around 9:00am on the busy Cabo San Lucas-Todos Santos highway and involved several cars, two pickup trucks and a semi-trailer.
Of the seven people killed in the accident, five were taxi drivers on their way to La Paz to meet with legislators and present their case against a new state transportation law.
The highway was closed for several hours after accident.
