MANAGUA, Nicaragua – The mayor of the northwestern Nicaraguan city of Posoltega has died in a traffic accident, the National Police and emergency officials said yesterday.
Carlos Alonso Tercero died Saturday night when the vehicle he was driving went off the road and into a ravine more than 15 meters deep, police in the town of Telica said.
