The images shared in the publication allow us to appreciate the state in which both cars were left after the impact. Surprisingly, the body of the almendrón (a Chevrolet from the 1950s) was more damaged than that of the vehicle. Pepper Soviet made.

In that sense, several users expressed their surprise, since the general opinion among Cubans (often corroborated by the facts) is that - in a crash against an almendrón - other cars have the upper hand, since their bodywork is usually more robust. .

However, in the case of this accident, which occurred near the Víbora Park gas station, the body of the Almendrón was more deformed than that of the Lada. In any case, fortunately the accident ended without fatalities or serious injuries.

On the eve of last Christmas Eve, an almond tree was left with its trunk destroyed after being hit from behind by a fire truck in the Arroyo Naranjo municipality.

A week before, on the eve of New Year's Eve, the driver of an almendrón lost his life of the state taxi company Gran Car in an accident that occurred in Las Tunas.

In mid December, An almendrón and two Ladas were involved in a spectacular accident multiple traffic that occurred on the Havana Malecón.
