Girl, 5, dies in car crash

AN ALLEGED drunk driver, 25, was arrested in Granada, accused of causing an accident in which a child was killed.

The accident occurred near Huetor Santillan, in Granada province, at around 6am on the A-92 motorway.  The girl, five, was travelling in a car with her family when their vehicle was allegedly rammed from behind by the detainee.

She died in hospital, and her father, 41; grandfather, 75, and mother, who is pregnant, were also injured.  A man who was in the same vehicle as the detainee was slightly injured.

When the Guardia Civil arrived on the scene, the driver allegedly fled on foot but was arrested shortly afterwards in a nearby town and charged with negligent manslaughter.

He had just regained his driving license after carrying out courses set by the DGT national traffic authority.
