At the age of 24, the driver who died in an accident on the BR-376, this Saturday morning (15), was identified as Matheus de Almeida Portinho, resident of Dourados, a city 233 km from Campo Grande. Matheus died charred, stuck to the hardware.

According to the PRF (Federal Highway Police) the main suspect is that Matheus threw the Volkswagen Saveiro against the Scania trailer to commit suicide, but the causes of the accident are still being investigated.

The truck driver, a 63-year-old man, said he was on his way to Fátima do Sul, where he lives, when Matheus invaded the lane in the opposite direction. In an attempt to avoid the accident, the elderly man swerved to the side of the road, but there was no time and the vehicles collided almost head-on.
