A 56-year-old man lost his life this morning in a traffic accident that occurred on a local road as it passed through the municipality of Benijófar, according to sources of the Guardia Civil’s traffic division.
The accident occurred at around 6.45 am at kilometre five of the CV-920. For causes being investigated by the Civil Guard, a van left the road and overturned. The emergency services, which had been dispatched to the scene of the accident, were unable to do anything to save the life of the only occupant of the vehicle, a 56-year-old man.
On the other hand, the A-31 motorway in the direction of Alicante was blocked for two kilometres by a marble rock falling from a heavy vehicle.
According to the Guardia Civil, the stone forced the right lane to be cut off at kilometre 223, at the height of the town of Monforte del Cid.
