A WASP has caused a multi-car pileup in Costa Blanca, injuring four people.

The driver lost control of her vehicle after the insect flew into her car, causing her to panic and crash head-on into another car near Benissa according to emergency services.

Both vehicles caught fire but fortunately all passengers were transferred safely to hospital with varying injuries.

The accident caused traffic jams which took almost an hour to clear.
