Initial reports from the Málaga Provincial Council suggest that the truck driver had halted the vehicle during their work rounds on Calle Isla Cristina in the high area of Torre de Benagalbón before exiting the vehicle. A potential brake failure coupled with the slope of the road led to the truck careening out of control, breaching the street’s safety barrier and tumbling down a several-metre incline before landing fully submerged in the residential pool.
