A driver was killed on Tuesday on the GR-16 in Motril after driving along the dual carriageway in the wrong direction. The GR-16 is the Autovía access to Motril Port.
According to the Protección Civil, the driver had reached the double-lane access road from the N-340. Soon after, he hit an oncoming car. The victim in the second car had to be cut out of the wreckage by fire-service personnel.
Whereas the driver of the car that caused the accident died, the woman driving the other car was injured (to what degree was not made known) and rushed to the main hospital in Granada.
The accident, which occurred at 18.55h, would have been worse if the following car had not acted swiftly and managed to avoid ramming into the other two cars.
