Four years sought for Guardia Civil A-7 driver

  • Investigators say that the sergeant tested positive for alcohol and drugs and was driving at 149 km/h in a 100 km/h area

The prosecutors' office in Malaga is asking for four years in the forthcoming trial of the off-duty Guardia Civil officer who is alleged to have caused a fatal pile up on the A-7 motorway near Torremolinos on 28 June last year.

Investigators say that the sergeant tested positive for alcohol and drugs and was driving at 149 km/h in a 100 km/h area. Despite the severity of the alleged offence, prosecutors say that the current law only allows them to ask for four years. Three tourists died in the accident.
