A 16-year-old boy has suffered the amputation of both legs at the knee when he was hit by a vehicle on the M-407, in Fuenlabrada, after the car he was travelling was involved in an accident.
The accident took place at around 10.30pm at kilometre 4 of the aforementioned road when a Seat Ibiza ran off the road and collided with the guardrail.
The driver and passenger left the road after the accident and, for reasons that are being investigated, the minor was then hit by another vehicle that had not noticed the accident ahead.
