Updated 4pm: Police have confirmed that the victim driving the van was a 33-year-old bakery delivery driver from Fasnia who was just starting his working day. The driver going the wrong way was a 34-year-old Frenchman, and police are investigating whether he took the wrong turning or was intentionally driving as a kamikaze.
Original post 21 June: Two men died in a head-on collision on the TF1 at Las Eras in the Arico area around 5am this morning. The accident was caused as someone drove at high speed the wrong way on the southbound carriageway, and understandably the main hypothesis at present is that it was a kamikaze incident which not only killed the driver responsible but also sadly cost the life of a motorist doing nothing wrong. Emergency services say that there was nothing ambulance crew could do to help either driver given the severity of their injuries, with bomberos being required to cut both drivers out of their vehicles, one a saloon car and the other a small van. The incident caused huge tailbacks at first light.
