GUARDIA CIVIL officers from the traffic department are on the hunt for a driver that is alleged to have caused an accident on the A-31 in Sax at the A-70 exit to Castalla.
Local police were first on the scene following the 112 call and handed over to the Guardia Civil whose first task was to try and find the driver that caused the accident and quickly left the area. According to reports, the offending driver and their car hit another car in the back which caused it to swerve a number of times before finally overturning.
The A-31 was closed in both directions for around an hour until both vehicles could be removed which resulted in long delays and required traffic to drive through the town of Sax to carry on their journeys.
Four people in the overturned car – two adults and two children – were taken to the University General Hospital in Elda suffering from varying injuries. It is understood that two of the passengers suffered serious injuries but none are in a life-threatening condition.
At the time of going to press, the driver that fled the scene after allegedly causing the collision is still being hunted by the Guardia Civil.
