The decision by the police in Salobreña to ask for citizen collaboration on social media to find the owner of the white Audi A3 paid off.
The young man behind the wheel of the said car decided to turn himself in, no doubt feeling the net closing in – one thing is to have the police looking for you and quite another everybody you know on facebook, etc, putting two and two together, as well.
However, he won’t be facing any criminal charges; just a fine for abandoning the scene of an accident without victims – had somebody been injured, that would have been a different matter.
The accident occurred in the early hours of the 7th on Avenida 28 de Febrero, more or less in front of the Salobreña Vacaciones, real-estate office.
