  • Salva Verdugo claims an animal ran in front of the car and insists "he was not drunk"

The Malaga YouTuber Salva Verdugo and his girlfriend have escaped serious injury after his 160,000 euro supercar skidded off the road and ended up in a ditch.

Verdugo, who now lives in Andorra, only recently unveiled his latest purchase, an Aston Martin Vantage, to his followers and said at the time, "They say that dreams come true ... this is not just a car, it is the reflection of years of work," on his Instagram account.

And now he has taken to social media again, telling followers on his YouTube channel how, at dawn on 25 July, he had a serious traffic accident in which his beloved Aston Martin was written off.

Luckily, both Salva Verdugo and his girlfriend, escaped relatively unharmed but the influencer has told how it has affected him psychologically. “I want you to know that I have been missing from social networks for days because, among other things, I have been in the hospital. Right now I am not well mentally and I am making this video only so that you know that I am alive and that I am well.”

Verdugo claims an animal ran into the road at dawn on a winding road Andorra. “I hit the brakes but I don't know what the hell happened because I don't remember it clearly; I know the car ended up in the ditch.”

It is reported that a breathalyser test at the scene showed a positive result, but Verdugo insists "I am totally sure that I was not drunk".
