Vélez-Benaudalla is also in the news today because of a car accident on Saturday night resulting in four people being slightly injured.
The accident occurred around 22.40h on the A-44, only one kilometre from the access junction for the village. For reasons unknown the car left the road and collided with the crash barrier.
The four occupants; a 46-year-old man and three women aged 24, 31 and 35, had only suffered very slight injuries and were treated on the spot by ambulance paramedics, so it was not necessary to take them to Motril hospital.
