A lorry driver had a lucky escape this morning when his lorry overturned after its brakes failed on approaching the end of the TF1 spur near Fonsalía. Traffic on the main road between Alcalá and Playa San Juan came to a standstill, though emergency services and road teams got the incident cleared and drivers moving again fairly quickly. The lorry driver himself was taken to hospital with head and back injuries which are thankfully said not to be serious. It could have been far worse given how steep the end of the motorway spur is, and if the driver hadn’t been so skilful: it appears that he deliberately drove into the ascending lane to turn the lorry in the centre of the roundabout itself.
