It was recognized that, among the people who lost their lives, was a Peruvian named Karla Rodriguez Dionisioa 40-year-old citizen who was on the bus in the company of her 9-year-old daughter and husband.

Reports indicate that the families of the fatal victims have requested support from the embassies to repatriate the bodies to their countries. The ambassador in the Dominican Republic and the consul are in permanent contact with tourists and relatives in Punta Cana.

In dialogue with ATV, the journalist Marcelo Ballester specified that the vehicle was in good condition, even “almost new”. The passenger list was made up of Colombian, Argentine, Chilean, Brazilian, and some Peruvian travelers. In total, more than 40 foreigners were in Punta Cana.

According to data collected by Infobae, the body of the Peruvian victim was not seen by her husband, since he was transferred to a hospital to receive the corresponding medical care for the injuries left by the accident.

According to the information released by the Diario Libre media outlet, the fact would have been caused by the driver of the tourist unit, whose final destination was Saona Island, where the participants would go on an excursion.

The man lost control of the vehicle when he tried to avoid two means of transport, a car and a truck.
