CHILD injured in crash when his microcar overturned in Alicante
A 16-year-old boy was rushed to hospital when his microcar – or quadricycle – collided with another vehicle and overturned at the roundabout at Dénia Avenue on Thursday morning, December 10. Emergency services and local police were called to Antonio Ramos Carratala in Alicante when it was reported that the microcar had climbed the curb and flipped over.
A quadricycle, or micro car, is a vehicle with three or four wheels and often an engine smaller than 700 cc.
Local Police rushed to remove the child from the car, which was emitting smoke. He was initially treated at the scene before being transferred to a local hospital. Firefighters had to block off the road at Avenida de Dénia as two cranes were required to move the vehicles.
The SPEIS Accident Rescue Unit reported that another accident involving three cars occurred at the same spot moments later, which they put down to driver distraction.
