  • Second death in a week of being crushed by vehicle belonging to the victim.

A 79 year old man of Spanish nationality died around 7 pm today, following a tragic accident while working on his own car.

The accident occurred on a farm in Buscastell, in the municipality of Sant Antoni.

As confirmed by the emergency service of 112, the victim was repairing the vehicle when it moved, running him over and causing fatal injuries before coming to rest hitting a tree.

Firefighters and Police attended the scene, however there was nothing they or the Paramedics could do to resuscitate the man. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

There is no information available as to what caused the vehicle to roll, or whether it was on jacks or blocks when the accident occurred.
