An 18-year-old man was admitted to intensive care at the Hospital Regional in Malaga after being hit by a car in Estepona while riding a scooter in the early hours of Saturday.

As confirmed to SUR by sources, the driver involved in the incident, a 43-year-old woman, is being investigated as it appears she was over the legal drink-driving limit.

Paramedics rushed to the scene and found the teenager seriously injured, having apparently suffered a hard blow to the head. He was rushed to the Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella, before then being taken to the Hospital Regional Universitario in Malaga.
