2 Die in Traffic Accident
Mrs. Caroline Oliveira Cipriano, 36, and her husband, businessman Mr. Gutemberg Sebastião Chaves, died in a tragic traffic accident involving two vehicles on the AM-010 highway, linking Manaus to the municipality of Rio Preto da Eva and Itacoatiara.
It was raining hard as the S-10 truck collided head-on with a bucket at about 5.30 pm on Thursday, 28, when the couple returned from the municipality of Rio Preto da Eva to Manaus. The doctor and the businessman lived in a condominium in the South Zone of the capital.
The collision was so violent that the engine of the S-10 pickup was thrown into the middle of the runway, as shown by photographs taken by people passing that section of the highway at the time of the accident.
Despite her own weight and the load the bucket was carrying, she also rolled on the runway, flipped over several times, and fell straight into a ravine about 10 meters off the highway.
