“At one point another UTV crossed, which was operated by someone other than the owner, they had loaned it to him. Matías hits him squarely, from the side. There his friend Lucas sees how Matías is doing and asks the other man who is waiting, who is going to seek help “, narrated Mariana Mares in dialogue with GLM.

And she continued with her story: “This man assisted Matías, took off his helmet, and detached it accordingly,” from what Lucas tells us. We want to clarify that he never ran away, he even gave him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, because our son had already started to convulse. Then they took him in the truck, they put him in the ambulance ”.

So it was that right after the 24-year-old’s friends managed to load him up and bring him to Route 11, where an ambulance was waiting, who took him up and transferred him even without regaining consciousness to the Pinamar hospital.

In the absence of the results of the accidentological expertise, Preliminary analyzes of both vehicles showed that Mares’s motorcycle had its main damage on the front, while the quad bike was mostly damaged on its left side..
