A woman in her 30s and her son, about 1 year old, died in a serious accident early this Thursday afternoon (16/6). A pickup truck collided with a passenger car on the MGC-135, in Engenheiro Navarro, in the North of Minas.
The truck was occupied by five people. The driver, a 53-year-old man, was rescued by helicopter to Santa Casa de Montes Claros, where he is intubated in serious condition.
