It was an unusual sight for drivers on the A-4132 as they were waved past an armoured car on its side after having tipped over.
The armoured vehicle belongs to the security company, Prosegur, used for transporting cash and other valuables to and from banks, etc.
Fire personnel from Cáñar and Motril were sent to the scene to free the injured driver, which was no easy task, as they can only be opened from the inside and the driver was in no position, both becauses of his injuries and from where he was lying, to let them in. They ended up having to break their way into the cabin.
There were no other vehicles involved in the incident, which the Guardia Civil are now investigating. The money, in case you were wondering, stayed nice and snug in the back.
