The Guardia Civil have arrested the 42-year-old driver of the vehicle which apparently swerved across the central reservation, into the path of the on coming lorry, causing the fatal pile-up on the Inca to Alcudia road on Tuesday. According to the police, the driver, who escaped with light injuries, failed an alcohol test which was carried out at a medical centre after he had been treated for his injuries. The Guardia Civil investigating the cause of the crash, in which three people died, are working on the theory that the Ford Escort, driven by the 42-year-old in the direction of Inca, crossed the central reservation, possibly because the driver was over the speed limit. The driver of the lorry, who died along with his nine-year-old son, had little time to break, hence he apparently pulled on the hand brake, causing the trailer to jack-knife round, spilling its load on to a passing vehicle, injuring the driver. The Guardia Civil are continuing with their investigation.
