A-7 motorway collision at Benferri-Orihuela exit


TWO cars collided at the Benferri-Orihuela exit of the A-7 motorway, injuring two people.

A 62-year-old woman was trapped and a 31-year-old man suffered a fractured knee in the crash which required three fire engines to help at the scene on the Murcia-bound lane.

Although trapped in the wreckage of her car for some time, the woman escaped with a few cuts and bruises but was taken to the Vega Baja Hospital in Orihuela with the male victim for further treatment.

Both the cause of the crash or road conditions at the time is unknown and are being investigated.
