A man lost his life and another suffered serious injuries when a truck crashed into a car in the municipality of Guanabacoa, in Havana, this Monday.

The fatal accident occurred at the intersection of Santo Domingo and Estrada Palma streets in the Havana locality, when the Fiat Polski car did not respect a "Stop" sign and was hit by the truck, according to a post on Facebook.

"Unfortunately, the driver of the Polski died, and the passenger is in critical condition," stated the author of the post, who expressed condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.

Members of the group "Accidents Buses & Trucks for more experience and fewer victims!" commented that crashes are frequent at that intersection because most drivers do not stop at the "Stop" sign.

Some even claimed that at that intersection there are three signs indicating the obligation to stop before proceeding, but unfortunately many drivers ignore them.
