A woman whose motorcycle collided with a car in Marbella town centre on Monday morning was given medical assistance by the local mayor, who happened to be passing the scene of the accident before the ambulance arrived.

The collision occurred at around 12 noon on the central Avenida Ricardo Soriano and the woman ended up on the ground with an ankle injury.

Mayor Ángeles Muñoz, who is a qualified doctor, passed the scene and didn't think twice about stopping to give the victim medical assistance while they waited for an ambulance, which took half an hour to arrive, according to witnesses.

The accident, which attracted a crowd of around 200 curious passers-by, caused hold-ups in the central avenue.
