Another tragedy on Ibiza´s roads.
A young British man age 21 years, was hit by a Peugeot 107, and from accounts received, is likely to have killed him outright immediately.
According to the emergency services announcement, the young man killed was walking along the centre of the dual carriageway road near the San Rafael tunnel. Important to clarify this – not the central reservation, he was walking actually in the middle of the road, between the two lanes.
Several cars had narrowly missed a collision before he was struck by the Peugeot around three a.m Sunday 20th July.
The 3 occupants of the car all sustained minor injuries. The driver gave negative alcohol and drug tests.
Resident Darren Candy was witness to the aftermath of the crash. Darren passed the scene and later said he had seen what looked to be a fatal crash. “There was a body completely covered in a sheet, that can only mean one thing”.
The accident occurred at 3am, at kilometer 9 of the EI-600 in Sant Antoni direction. Darren described this as just san an side of the San Rafael tunnel.
There is no indication why the young lad was walking down the centre of the road. Inevitably people will draw conclusions.
The British consulate are in liaison with Next of Kin.
Our thoughts are with the family of the young man who lost his life, and also with the driver and occupant of the car, who will also be suffering.
