Four contestants of the upcoming Miss San Pedro Pageant 2018, including the reigning Miss San Pedro and four other chaperones, were involved in a traffic accident while returning to Chetumal from Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico, on Monday, August 20. None of them were seriously injured but passengers of the vehicle that crashed into theirs were taken to a nearby hospital.

The passengers in the van included Miss San Pedro Contestants Seleny Borges, Janelly Aban, Daisy Martinez, Chelsea Muņoz, (Faith Noel Edgar was unable to attend) Miss San Pedro 2017 Virginia Vasquez and chaperones Shamir Guerrero, Andy Nuņez, Yakarelis Hernandez and Councilor Flora Ancona. No one from San Pedro, Belize was seriously injured except for Yakarelis Hernandez who was traveling in the front passenger side of the vehicle. She was badly shaken up from the impact of the collision and the deployment of the air bag. The van was a chartered rental that took the group to Playa del Carmen for the delegates to shop for their evening gowns and enjoy a tour of the area.
