A 19-year-old youth was killed this morning (Saturday) after a head-on collision on the Palma-Inca motorway.

The incident occurred at around ten past three near to the exit for Santa Maria. A Volkswagen Golf was travelling in the wrong direction and collided with a Seat Altea that was being driven by a nineteen-year-old young woman, who was seriously injured. Witnesses suggest that the Golf was doing 90kph at least.

The "kamikaze" male driver (aged 31) of the Golf was also in a serious condition. He and the young woman had to be cut free by a fire crew before being rushed to Son Espases. The nineteen-year-old youth was a passenger in the Golf that was being driven by his brother. He was not wearing a safety belt.

The motorway was reopened around five o'clock after cranes had removed the vehicles. The Guardia Civil are checking cameras to try and establish what happened.

I recall the " GUARDIA " stating that the number of accidents occurring in Mallorca were mainly caused by 18 to 25 year old drivers. The Guardia wanted all licence holders in that age group, to be re-tested,. In the hope that further road safety education, that may reduce these young drivers accidents and deaths. Those parents/guardians with the money to buy their siblings new cars, should perhaps re-consider their actions. These new vehicles today are LETHAL WEAPONS by the way that they can be driven at very high speeds.
