A bus has been involved in a fatal traffic accident at the entrance to Cadiz city leaving at least three people dead and two seriously injured, this Monday afternoon (9 October).
According to police sources speaking to Europa Press, the incident happened at about 3.45pm when the driver of the vehicle appeared to lose control on the descent from one of the road bridges and invaded the oncoming lane and mounted the pavement.
According to SUR's sister title, La Voz Digital, a 17-year-old young man, a 19-year-old young woman and a 60-year-old woman, were the fatal victims of the accident in Cadiz.
One very seriously injured person was rushed to a local hospital's intensive care unit and several other slightly injured people. The bus driver tested negative at the scene and everything points to a mechanical failure. The 19-year-old young woman was from Castilleja de la Cuesta and the other victims, the young man and the middle-aged woman, were from Cadiz.
According to firefighters, the occupants of the bus have not suffered any injuries.
One of the theories being investigated is that the bus may have suffered a brake failure on the descent from the Andalusian city's second bridge, which is very steep, and ended up invading the opposite lane, mounting the pavement and crashing into the bus stop and taxi rank area at the doors of the El Corte Inglés department store.
