The accident occurred at dawn last Sunday. More migrants of Central American origin were traveling in the vehicle, although the number of Salvadorans traveling in it has not been detailed.

The Salvadoran woman who died was identified as Patricia Lisseth Quinteros, 29, originally from the municipality of Chirilagua, department of San Miguel, according to people who knew the victim and who confirmed the death.

The same sources indicated that Samuel Mercado, Patricia’s cousin, is receiving medical attention. He was also originally from Chirilagua.

Both Salvadorans had left El Salvador for two weeks, intending to reach the United States, given the difficult economic situation they were going through in their places of origin.

Patricia’s death occurred just the day Victoria Salazar was buried in a private cemetery in Sonsonate; the Salvadoran woman was murdered by a group of police from the city of Tulum, Quintana Roo state.
