A MULTI-VEHICLE pile-up on the A-7 in Torremolinos has left three people dead and four injured.

Witnesses say one car was lifted into the air after a lorry crashed into the back of it.

Reports say the accident occurred where a slip road merges onto the A-7 heading towards Marbella.

The first victim died instantly in the crash.

Two of the victims, a 26-year-old man and 30-year-old woman, both suffered severe cranial traumas and did not survive their first night in Carlos Haya Hospital.

One person remains in a serious condition in hospital, while the other two are stable, but have suffered several injuries such as broken bones.
