Mexico presidential candidate Patricio hurt, 1 dead in crashMexican independent presidential candidate Maria de Jesus Patricio was wounded in a crash that killed a person riding in her caravan and wounded two others Wednesday.

The National Indigenous Council said in a short statement that an SUV carrying Patricio and 10 other people went off a highway in the state of Baja California Sur.

The group said a woman was killed and council member Francisco Grado was in severe condition. Patricio and council member Lucero Islava also had injuries, the report said without giving any details.

Patricio has been running as an independent candidate seeking to get a place on the July 1 presidential ballot. However, days before a deadline to gather some 866,000 signatures to qualify for the ballot, she is well short of the requirement.
