Update 6pm: As Phil posted in the comments below, the crash was between a taxi and a bus. Six were injured, five not seriously, but one was gravely hurt. All six were transferred to hospital, three to Hospiten Sur and three to Hospital Costa Adeje.
Original post: Trafico is reporting in the last half hour (around 1 o’clock) a bad traffic accident at the entrance to Playa de la Arena. Bare reports right now, but a bus seems to have been involved, and there are casualties, some foreigners, being attended to on the ground. Details later as they come.
Update 21 April: Sanidad has given the all clear for water to be consumed in all the municipalities affected by yesterday’s diesel spill in north Tenerife. All the tests have apparently now been completed and Sanidad says that water can now be used for cooking and personal hygiene and, most importantly, for drinking. The municipalities that had been affected were Santa Úrsula, La Victoria de Acentejo, La Matanza de Acentejo, El Sauzal, Tacoronte, La Laguna and Santa Cruz.
