At least three motorcyclists died and four more were injured after a fatal accident that occurred on the Mexico-Cuernavaca highway at kilometer 51 in Cuajomulco, in the direction of the State of Morelos, in Mexico.
According to the first reports, motorcyclists, apparently traveling in a group, were speeding down the highway, causing the accident.
It was almost at the height of the area known in Mexico as Tres Marías where motorcyclists, when changing lanes, lost control and they hit two cargo vehicles that were circulating in the area.
