Update 14 June: Police have now confirmed that the driver was a 70-year-old man who is thought to have suffered a heart attack while driving: the passenger was his 68-year-old wife. Police say, also, that the couple was taken to the Quirón hospital itself given that both were in critical condition and the hospital was the nearest to the incident – on the doorstep, indeed. Hospital sources say that emergency staff fought to save the man, but in the end were unable to help him. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Original post 13 June: A man died around midday today after a traffic accident near the Quiron Hospital (formerly the USP) in San Eugenio. Eyewitnesses say that the car started swerving when it was travelling between the San Eugenio commercial centre and the Playa de las Américas bus station, ricocheted off several trees, and finally crashed into a stone wall. The driver and passenger were taken to hospital, but the driver sadly didn’t survive his injuries.
