A head on car crash on the roads of Mijas on Spain’s Costa del Sol has left one person dead and four seriously injured as the cars smashed head on into each other at speed.
The head on car crash took place on the notorious bad road on the A-7053 and police investigators are currently try to establish the cause of two cars going head to head into each other.
Road deaths already are into a high count on the Costa del Sol with only 9 days gone of the month. Recent road deaths include saw a 46-year-old motorcyclist die on the A-357 in Malaga, a man in his 80’s on the A-7 in Estepona, another unknown person on the A-357 in Carratraca, and a male on Sunday on the A-7053 towards Mijas.
It’s been a very high rate for just a 9 day period and we the Euro Weekly News asked Rupert Hayman a driving instructor to security forces for his opinion.
” Speed and lack of observation are normally the main causes of road death, those roads in Spain are not modern enough away from the motorways to take speed or a slip of concentration can be fatal on them – bends are often blind and road surfaces below par. An average standard driver needs to concentrate harder on those Spanish roads and keep a safe distance at all times” Said Rupert.
