Friends of the three young people aged 18, 21 and 23 who died after crashing into a truck last Saturday morning in Son Ferriol went to the accident site this Sunday to lay flowers in memory of the three victims at one of the road signs. They also wrote dedications on the sign post, which warns of the danger of driving in both directions.
The accident occurred around three in the morning this past Saturday, on the MA30 at Son Ferriol. This is the road that goes from Marratxí to Mercapalma, specifically the accident took place near the CHL warehouses. The Traffic Civil Guard continues to investigate the fatal accident. The agents have found out that the two men were not wearing their seat belts and everything indicates that the Volkswagen Sirocco in which they were traveling was traveling at high speed. The car, after colliding with a truck, was split into two parts and the intervention of firefighters was necessary to rescue the victims. The deceased are Spanish and resided in Palma.
Some sources have highlighted the fact that the section of this road in Palma where two boys and a girl have lost their lives is a black spot where two young people who were riding motorcycles have already died in 2021. In that incident, two friends living in Palma 18 and 19-year-olds lost their lives at night, when a driver lost control of his vehicle and invaded the opposite lane. The impact with the boys’ motorcycle was tremendous and both died. It’s about a kilometer which has registered more accidents in recent years, some of them fatal.
According to investigators, the woman who died this past Saturday was the driver of the vehicle. The other woman recovers from injuries produced in a hospital in Palma. His statement may be decisive in shedding light on the circumstances surrounding the fatal accident in Palma. In this sense, the Benemérita investigates the reasons why the car lost control and ended up crashing into the front side of a truck that was traveling properly, in the opposite direction. His driver tested negative for alcohol and drugs.
