Local Police officers in Andalucía's Almeria province have arrested a 22- year-old man, who has tested positive for alcohol and drugs, after he was identified as the driver of the vehicle involved in a fatal accident in the early hours of this Tuesday morning (18 June). An 18-year-old young woman and a 23-year-old man died after the car, for reasons that are still being investigated, left the road.

Municipal sources have confirmed to Europa Press that the young man, who was uninjured, was arrested at his home shortly after the incident after having fled the scene of the accident, although he could be identified through the high-end vehicle he was driving, which was completely wrecked and split in half.
