A young married couple have died in a fatal traffic accident this Monday, February 14, when a bus collided with a car in the Sevillian municipality of Sanlucar la Mayor. The deceased are reportedly Nerea RJ, a 19-year-old female, and Jose Antonio HB. a 22-year-old male, residents of the nearby town of Aznalcollar.
As reported to EFE by sources from the 112 emergency services, this tragic incident occurred at around 2:15pm this afternoon. It took place at the junction where the roads leading to the municipalities of Aznalcollar, Sanlucar la Mayor, and Huevar del Aljarafe, all converge, on the A-472, not far from the solar power plant.
The bus belonging to the Metropolitan Transport Consortium, reportedly smashed into the left side of the car at high speed. Everything indicates, pending the conclusion of the Guardia Civil investigations, that the car did not respect the bus’s right of way at the intersection.
