Original post 29 April: A man has been killed after being run over on the TF1 near Güímar. The tragedy happened on the south-bound carriageway, and despite the attendance of emergency services, paramedics could do nothing more for him than confirm his death at the scene. Some sources say the accident happened at 9.30 last evening, others at 9.30 this morning, but either way, the poor soul has still not been identified, though some sources say he was an indigent. He is said to have suffered a heart attack.
In a separate incident, a 19-year-old youth was run over last evening on the TF5 in the Vista Bella area between Santa Cruz and La Laguna. Thankfully on this occasion there was a happier outcome, with the lad suffering non-critical head and chest injuries. He was transferred to Candelaria where he remains for treatment. PV
