The Ertzaintza has arrested the driver who fled last Friday after causing an accident on the Donostia-San Sebastián bypass in which a motorcyclist died. The arrested, 27 years old and who lacks a driving licensehas been caught driving under the influence of alcohol and narcotic substances.

As recalled by the Basque Department of Security, the fatal accident occurred at quarter past nine on the GI-20 road as it passed through the capital of Gipuzkoa. A van was driving exceeding the speed limits on that stretch of the variant when it collided with the motorcycle. Due to the crash, the motorcycle went off the road and hit the fence.

While several people stopped to help the victim, who he died shortly after in hospitaland notify the emergency services, the driver who caused the accident fled.


The investigations carried out by the Ertzaintza led to the identification of the vehicle that caused the accident, which was located this Saturday circulating through the town of Rentería in the direction of San Sebastian. The agents began monitoring the van, whose driver was circulating committing traffic violations, making zigzag overtaking, both on the right and on the left at a speed much higher than allowed and endangering the rest of the road users.

Finally, a patrol was able to stop the van at Riberas de Loiola and, after drug and alcohol test to the driver, tested positive in both. Likewise, it was found that he has never obtained a driver’s license.

Given these facts, the agents proceeded to Driver’s arrest for causing a felony reckless death and for driving under the influence of alcohol and toxic drugs. Likewise, he is also accused of leaving the place after causing an accident and driving without ever having obtained a driving license. The 27-year-old arrested person will be brought to justice once the police investigations are completed.
