Cerrejón Reports

At 7:10 am, a private vehicle crossed into the lane of an Amtur bus with Cerrejón personnel, causing a head-on collision. The accident occurred at the location of the alternate road from Hatonuevo to Barrancas.

The four occupants of the car were injured and promptly transported by Cerrejón’s Emergency Response Group to the Hospital Nuestra Señora del Carmen in Hatonuevo for assessment. The Hospital then referred them to the San Juan del Cesar municipality for appropriate medical care. Cerrejón’s employees and contractors on the Amtur bus were all uninjured.

Cerrejón regrets this accident, and we hope the injured recover soon. We will also be awaiting the investigation into the causes of this incident by the appropriate authorities.
