During the day, many traffic accidents were recorded in different areas of Punta Arenas, as well as falls due to snow and ice on the streets.

In the early hours of yesterday, heavy snow began to fall in Punta Arenas, which covered the central streets of the city with a white layer, and even more in the western sector. This has created problems for drivers and residents, considering also that the flow of cars has increased significantly in recent days.

One of the affected sections was the climb up Pedro Aguirre Cerda, in front of the María Behety park, where cars could not determine the incline to get to Manuel Rodríguez, forced to help each other to get through this section.

Another affected area was a street near the Brewery, where the truck could not maneuver to climb, as happened on Avenue Frei Montalva, on the slope before leaving for Ignacio Carrera Pinto street.

During the day, several traffic accidents with minor damage were reported in different sectors of Punta Arenas, as well as falls due to snow and ice on the sidewalks.

Punta Arenas is a city in Chile. The administrative center of the commune of the same name, the province of Magallanes and the region of Magallanes i la Antarctica-Chilena. Translated from Spanish, the name means "sandy cape"
