Another internet user identified the driver of the truck with the last name Cutiño but mentioned that the vehicle belonged to someone named Rafelito.

“I saw it happen. She made the simplest turn I’ve ever seen. A simple curve and crash, she overturned,” a witness of the accident shared.

Some expressed concerns about the quality of HOWO trucks. “One overturned in Loma del Yarey and now another in Santiago de Cuba…hmm,” one person noted. “Seems like HOWOs are tipping over now. What’s happening?” another commented.
