In another tragedy on the roads, a 20-year-old woman died this morning and four others were injured in a head-on collision on the TF5 in Los Realejos. Emergency services say that the accident happened shortly before half past seven near the El Mirador petrol station on the northbound carriageway, and that bomberos had to cut several of the affected out of their vehicles.
Of the four injured, one was also a 20-year-old woman who suffered serious stomach injuries, while a 23-year-old man sustained a serious upper arm injury: both were transferred to HUC. A 43-year old man received multiple injuries and was transferred to Candelaria Hospital, and a 50-year-old man suffered non-serious upper arm injuries and was taken to Hospiten Bellevue. Sadly, the young woman who died succumbed to the injuries she sustained in the crash and was declared dead at the scene. The Guardia Civil is investigating the incident.
