The Guardia Civil, traffic police and an ambulance were despatched to the scene of the accident and the victim transferred to Hospital Santa Ana.

The other incident was on the A-44 leading down to the coast from Granada caused important tailbacks forming just before the bridge over El Pantano de Rules around 13.00h.

There had been ‘shunting’ accident when one car tail-ended another, which was made worse by the “gawker effect;” cars slowing to a crawl as they drove past. Nobody was injured.
