The vehicle that is believed to have crashed into the other was a red Clio driven by a 49 year old Dutch man. He was found conscious at the scene by emergency services, but after being freed from the vehicle by Firefighters, he suffered a cardiac arrest whist being taken to hospital by the ambulance, and could not be resuscitated, being pronounced dead on arrival.

The vehicle he hit was a Fiat Dobló van, driven by a 49-year-old Spaniard, who was seriously injured and taken to the Policlinic, where he remains in the ICU with several rib fractures.

In the Fiat Diablo was was also a 20-year-old Swiss national, who was slightly injured and has already been discharged by the Polyclinic.

The team of Atestes of the Agrupación de la Guardia Civil de Ibiza has taken over the investigation of the incident, although everything seems to point to the vehicle of the deceased victim having crossed into the lane of the van.

There is no information in either report as to toxicology tests for alcohol or drugs of the drivers of either vehicle.

It is the second fatal traffic accident this year. Last week a motorcyclist died when he left Santa Eulària when he lost control of his vehicle.
