A guard at a Jacó hotel died Monday morning after a motorist backed over him, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
The 46-year-old victim was identified by the last name of Quesada. The investigating agency said that the vehicle involved was a Hummer and that the motorist, 23, was detained because he did not have a license to drive.
The accident happened in the parking lot of the motel, agents reported. The driver appears to have put the vehicle in reverse and backed up. The guard died after being taken to a clinic.
