Madre e hija perdieron la vida en un aparatoso accidente de tránsito en Carretera de Santa Ana a San Salvador.

CDS attend to a traffic accident registered on kilometer 39 of the Pan-American Highway, where mother and daughter passed away in a terrible traffic accident.

María Concepción Orellana de Carpio, 89, and her daughter Ana Virginia Carpio de Landaverde, 59, originally from Metapán, were traveling to a medical appointment in San Salvador and had contracted the Uber service, but upon reaching Ciudad Maple, the car tire, came off its axle and the driver lost control, crashing into a tree.

Both women flew out of the car.  The driver was seriously injured, so he was taken to an emergency care center.  Rescuers from Comandos de Salvamento determined that both women had lost their lives instantly after the traumas they received.

Police authorities cordoned off the area to start the investigation of the road mishap that left the Carpio family in mourning with our rescuers offering critical emotional support.
