A van carrying the family from Washington state collided with a motorcycle and another car. All of the vehicles caught fire. Two people riding the motorcycle died as well as the driver of the other car.

Seven people inside the van were killed. The U.S. Embassy in Mexico City confirmed that “several” U.S. citizens were killed in the accident.
