UPDATE: News has now emerged that the driver of the Bentley was Wesley Capper and his passenger was named as Craig Porter, both of whom discovered last month that they were to be prosecuted over the abduction of a young Latvian woman Agnese Klavina in 2014.
It is understood that he has been detained by the court and will only be released after payment of €300,000.
One of the EWN readers contacted the newspaper about the hit and run incident saying: “Last night a UK reg Bentley passed me at speed near La Colonia. It drove over the chevron lines, almost colliding with two other cars and through the roundabout without stopping. I am thinking it was this lunatic that knocked down the lady and drove off. So pleased to know he has been arrested.”
ALTHOUGH there is some confusion regarding some of the details surrounding the events of May 9, it can be said for sure that a South American woman, possibly riding a bicycle, was struck by a British-registered Bentley on the evening of May 9, on a road adjacent to the San Pedro Alcantara Boulevard, which has seen similar accidents in the past.
On this occasion, the driver of the car (who is said to be British), which struck the woman with such force that she was thrown 100 feet, did not stop and has since been arrested by officers of the Local Police whilst apparently drinking in a bar, and it is alleged that he did not pass a breathalyser test.
The victim was rushed to the Costa del Sol Hospital, but suffered a heart attack and died.
