A man wanted by police has been held in the wake of a spectacular car crash in central Benidorm.

The shocking incident was witnessed by Euro Weekly News reader Robert Ribbon, who was sitting in his car on Avenida Rincon de Loix. 

“A 4×4 collided with a van on the rear corner, hit a motorbike and rider, and then smashed into a number of motorbikes which were parked up.


“It continued for around another 100 yards and hit a tree on the left hand side before coming to a standstill.”
