Two people died in a crash on the A-7 Barcelona to Alicante motorway this morning, in the area near to Massamagrell, when two vehicles collided, one of which caught fire, trapping the occupants.
The incident occurred at around 10:30 this morning, at kilometre 314 of the A-7 motorway in the Alicante direction, when a car and an SUV collided. The car caught fire almost immediately, the two occupants being trapped inside, who died before they could be rescued.
The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries, and so will be able to assist investigators who are trying to ascertain the circumstances behind the tragic event.
The motorway was closed for some time, pending the removal of the vehicles and victim, partially opening some three hours later.
