Three cruise passengers were hurt in a car buggy accident on Thursday while visiting the Mexican island of Cozumel. The Carnival Paradise was calling at the port which is located in the Western Caribbean as part of a 5-night sailing from Tampa, Florida.

According to local Police in Cozumel at around 12:15 PM the driver of the small red buggy lost control and ended up hitting a tree on the side of the road. The driver named Frank Colemire hit his head on the windshield and needed further medical attention at a local clinic. Due to the open roof and lots of branches and shrubs, the other two buggy passengers had various bruises and wounds but nothing too serious.

The cruise ship passengers were driving in the region of the Mayan Ruins known as El Cedral and were just two miles from the entrance. It’s not clear if this was a tour booked through the cruise line or their own personal tour.

In April Cruise Hive reported of a tragic accident involving two Carnival Liberty passengers. They sadly died after a moped accident on one of the main roads near the cruise port in Cozumel. We must urge anyone visiting Cozumel to be careful when using local transport and booking these kinds of tours.

Carnival Paradise is a Fantasy class ship and yesterday arrived back at its home port in Tampa, Florida.
