The return of a dream trip in Cartagena for an Ibaguer family turned into a painful tragedy due to a traffic accident on the Chicoral bypass, jurisdiction of El Espinal. Three people died, including a well-known merchant from the Musical Capital.
At about 1:15 a.m. on September 20, the authorities attended a road accident at kilometer seven of the Girardot – Ibagué road, where three occupants of a truck lost their lives after the load of a tractor-trailer hit them. crushed. Two more people, including a minor, survived.
“Apparently the driver of a tractor-trailer vehicle performs an evasive maneuver in order to avoid colliding with a truck-type vehicle that was in the same direction of the road. Unfortunately, the truck overturned on the right side and with its load it caused the crushing of this truck,” said Major Nayibe Díaz Beltrán, Sectional Chief of Transit and Transportation of Tolima.
Criminalistics units and ambulances arrived at the site and were in charge of removing the bodies and transferring the injured to the emergency center of the San Rafael de El Espinal hospital.
“At around 3:20 in the morning two patients enter our emergency room due to a traffic accident, the first being Karol Tatiana Ibarra Malambo with trauma to the cervical, dorsal and lumbar spine. She did not present loss of consciousness and she reports moderate pain. With her, Juan Antonio Avilés Ibarra, who is her son, enters, at the moment he is stable, active and without signs of difficulty breathing, ”said Carmen Patricia Henao Max, manager of the San Rafael hospital.

Likewise, Henao Max stated that they took the three deceased, Víctor Manuel Avilés Mendoza, Sergio Andrés Bernal and Andrea Katherine Montaña Tabio, to the morgue of the medical center, where the Tolima Police arrived to carry out urgent acts.
However, although the survivors were stabilized by the doctors, Karol Tatiana went into ‘shock’ when she learned of the death of her sentimental partner: “She is in the hands of social work and psychology while she continues with the treatment,” the manager pointed out.
“We had an accident, Víctor passed away, he died” was the message sent by Karol Tatiana Ibarra Malambo informing her loved ones and relatives about the misfortune.
Víctor Manuel Avilés Mendoza, his wife Karol Tatiana Ibarra Malambo and their two-year-old son, Juan Antonio Avilés Ibarra, a merchant from the La 21 market square and a businessman from Fruver in the city, were returning home after spending several days on vacation.
The Avilés Ibarra family traveled to Cartagena to celebrate the 35th birthday of the head of the household. For several days they enjoyed the sea, the sun and the beach, however, when they returned they suffered a traffic accident.
Upon arrival at El Dorado International Airport, the family was picked up by acquaintances in Bogotá bound for Ibagué. Presumably, the decision to travel immediately was related to the food purchases that he had to make at dawn in the La 21 market square to stock his business, a fruver located on Carrera Sixta between streets 20 and 21.
But on the way, the tractor-trailer professional lost control of the grouper and overturned on the truck where the Avilés Ibarra family was traveling, along with Sergio Andrés Bernal Díaz and Andrea Katherine Montaña Tabio.
In the midst of pain Karol Tatiana Ibarra Malambo had to report that her husband had died and that she and her little one were in the medical center.
