Judicial agents said Tuesday that a pirate taxi collided head-on with a truck in San Rafael de Guatuso and that at least four persons died.
The taxi was transporting a family from the area, the Judicial Investigating Organization said.
The taxi driver and two adults died in the midday crash as well as a 13-year-old passenger, said agents. In critical condition at a hospital was a male passenger.
Agents said it appeared that the taxi driver tried to pass a motorcycle and collided head-on with the truck. Both vehicles overturned, agents said.
