A family lived moments of anguish after being stripped of their truck while traveling on the Monterrey-Nuevo Laredo highway, moments that were captured on video by a trailer that was circulating on the road.
In the nearly 60-second recording, three trucks can be seen while the victims, a couple and two young men walk in the opposite direction glued to the dividing wall.
Moments later and despite the risk situation, the operator of the heavy unit went down and did not hesitate to approach those affected.
“Are you okay?” the trailer asked, as the family’s faces reflected the scare they went through.
The assault occurred around 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 23, but authorities received the report at 6:56 p.m.
According to the report of the facts, the criminals committed the robbery at the height of the mamulique slope, in the municipality of Salinas Victoria, Nuevo León.

It is not the Government that is responsible for conducting the investigations, nor is it the Secretariat of Public Security, it is the Prosecutor’s Office, and it is the prosecutor who has the precise data and who transmits it to the security tables.
