Military convoy in serious collision


FIVE MEN were rushed to hospital in Cartagena this week after a serious accident involving an Army convoy, on the AP-30 Autovia close to Torre Pachacho.

The collision occurred at around 13.30h on Wednesday afternoon on exit 174 of the busy motorway, between two vehicles, a military truck carrying Army Paratroopers and a lorry.

Emergency services were called to the scene and five men aged between 31 to 40 were immediately transferred to the General University Hospital Santa Lucía of Cartagena, where they were treated for a range of injuries.

One of the injured men was described as being in a serious but stable condition by the hospital on Wednesday evening.

Police officers who were also on the scene quickly are investigating the circumstances behind the accident and whether foul play or sabotage to the military convoy was behind the incident.

Police were unable to confirm whether any of the injured men were travelling in the lorry before the accident.
