The trailer of a lorry overturned on the A-7 motorway around Marbella on Thursday morning, causing major headaches for motorists with up to 12 kilometres of tailbacks. The traffic backlog wasn't cleared until well into the afternoon. The lorry's load blocked two of the three carriageways westbound and at one time the queues stretched as far back as the Elviria areas from near the bus station.
