A 38-year-old woman died, tragically, on the morning of this Thursday, September 22, after the overturning of a private transport unit that occurred in the so-called Curva de Los Peluches, in the vicinity of the El Mirador sector, jurisdiction of the San Cristobal municipality.
She was identified as Dayana Alejandra Zambrano Chávez, who worked as an imaging analyst at the San Cristóbal Clinical Center.

The A-28, A-38 ambulance units, as well as the Rescue Unit 01, and the M-61 attended the site, whose personnel, after confirming the death of Zambrano Chávez, provided primary care to the other passengers of the wrecked vehicle.
On board unit A-28 they transferred the driver, 37 years old, who was injured. He was diagnosed with polytrauma. After stabilizing him, he was transferred to a private health center for his respective medical check-up.
Commissions of the Land Traffic Service of the Bolivarian National Police -PNB- were present at the site, in order to execute the corresponding expertise to reveal the causes of the road event.
