A young cyclist died in the Alicante municipality of San Vicente del Raspeig after being run over by a tram.

 

A tragic event occurred next to the University of Alicante on Saturday, January 14. A young cyclist was run over by a tram in the municipality of San Vicente del Raspeig, in front of the Cristo de la Paz mortuary.

The incident took place at around 19:30pm, with the deceased, a teenage boy, somehow finding himself trapped under the moving vehicle.

Although the emergency services were immediately deployed to the location, their efforts proved futile as the victim died instantly. As a result, they were not required to transfer him to a hospital.

Posting on their official Twitter profile, the Consorcio Provincial Bomberos Alicante wrote @BomberosDipuALC: “We regret the death of a young man in a traffic accident with the TRAM. Our deepest condolences to family and friends”.
