THE man who was killed in a car crash on January 31 in the Calle Rio Volga in Marbella has been identified by police as being of Algerian origin, with three unanswered arrest warrants having been issued against him.
After his passenger was freed from the black Volkswagen Golf which had overturned, officers searched the vehicle and found a ski mask and gloves, as well as an identity document which suggested that he was a Belgian citizen, which was proven to be false after officers contacted his family.
At this stage, there is no explanation as to why the car careered off of the road, hitting a tree with no other vehicle involved.
The car itself was a total write-off and had to be removed by crane whilst fire- fighters undertook responsibility of cleaning up the road. The body of the man was taken to the Forensic Anatomical Centre in Malaga.
