A 70-YEAR old man tragically died in a traffic accident in Los Gallardos in the early hours of Saturday morning, the Andalucia 112 emergency service reported.
A witness to the incident called 112 just before 1am to report a vehicle had turned over on the N-340A at kilometre marker 512 at the level of the Los Collados area.
Guardia Civil and a health emergency team rushed to the scene, but could only confirm the driver’s death.
This was the second major accident on Almeria’s roads in less than a week. Four days earlier a lorry overturned on the A-7 motorway in Huercal de Almeria and hit a car. No one was killed, but there were reports of injuries and the incident caused a kilometre-long tailback.
