How many times have you read of a car accident where one of the drivers doesn’t have a valid licence… but what about if neither has one? Read on.
The tragic accident occurred on Thursday 3rd October on the A-341 where it passes through Zafarray and resulted in two deaths and one person seriously injured. It was two in the afternoon and immigrant field hands were making their way home.
First investigations appear to show that one of the cars strayed into the oncoming lane, which resulted in the head-on collision. One of the victims was a 33-year-old Ecuadorian immigrant, who was driving a white Renault Megane. The Other was the front passenger in the other car; a 27-year-old Moroccan. The driver of this second car was the one who was seriously injured, being evacuated by helicopter to the Granada main hospital.
What makes this accident surprising, as well as tragic, is the fact that neither of the drivers had a valid driving licence – both had lost them; i.e., had them withdrawn.
Anybody who has used this road will know that it is very straight and despite there being a 90-kph speed limit, many drivers put their foot down (go fast). Judging by the state of the two cars, this might have been the case.
