THE body of a man who had apparently been run over by his own car has been found in Alhaurin el Grande.
The Guardia Civil is investigating the death of the man in his 40s who was found today (Sunday, September 15).
Although the area in which he was found is one of those affected by this weekend’s storms, police are not connecting his death to localised flooding.
Indications are that the man died after his car rolled on to him. He was found crushed between a large garden planter and his car at the bottom of a steep driveway.
Apparently, his family had not heard from him since Wednesday and decided to check the house after Saturday’s storms to make sure it was not damaged. It was then that the body was found.
An investigation into the death has been opened by police.
