Gunplay on major highway leaves two men murdered

Two cars chased by men in a pickup collided near Siquirres Tuesday afternoon and pursuers were able to gun down both drivers.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said the killings happened on heavily traveled Ruta 32 near the Río Hondo bridge.

Two passenger cars were being chased by men in a pick-up when one car collided with the rear of the other and the vehicles crashed into the bridge. The drivers were able to get out of the wrecks, but then the men in the pick-up arrived and began shooting multiple times, said agents.

One victim was a 30-year-old man with the name of Rodríguez, and the second victim had not been identified, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
