CASTELLAR/SAN ROQUE (Previous item) Three vehicles were involved in the fatal accident that happened on Monday evening on the A-405 almost exactly on the boundary between Castellar and San Roque, a Ford Mondeo, a Ford Transit van and a peugeot 306. The woman who died driving the Mondeo was from Estación de Jimena, and identified with the initials M.D.Z.R. The driver of the van, Elena V., also from Jimena (she runs the plant nursery in San Pablo, was seriously injured, though less seriously than at first thought. Apparently, these two vehicles ran into each other on one side of the duel carriageway, towards Castellar and the van was projected some 50m from the place of impact. The third car, the Peugeot, came onto the accident but was unable to avoid it.>>>
The Ford Mondeo was carrying four people: the driver, the victim and two children, both of whom were able to get out of the vehicle before the emergency services arrived, as were the occupants of the Peugeot, a mother and her son.
The fire brigade had to use hydraulic machinery to cut away the roofs of the other two cars and move the dashboards, to remove the drivers, both of whom were conscious.
The Guardia Civil has not yet determined the reason behind the accident.
