The car was stuck in a concrete block that divides the road between Avenida Paralela and the access towards the Stella Maris neighborhood. The driver said he asked for help and as it was not yet dawn, he went to a gas station in the region to wait for the insurance to arrive.
However, while the doctor was waiting, the car had both front wheels stolen. In addition, the rear window was broken by the criminals in an attempt to gain access to the interior of the vehicle. The doctor did not say whether any belongings that were inside the car were taken.
