A 40-year-old motorbike rider was killed around 5pm yesterday on the TF5 motorway near La Matanza in north Tenerife. Emergency services say that he was declared dead at the scene from multiple injuries, which local reports indicate were received when he was hit by a van after stopping to assist a car which had broken down on the hard shoulder. The poor man is said to have been a Guardia Civil officer, and the van driver to have tested positive for alcohol.
