Anais M.B., the 28-year-old driver of the Porsche Cayenne who caused the accident on Thursday which resulted in the death of a German cyclist, has been remanded in custody.
She was arrested on Friday, having initially been at liberty following the accident. The cyclist, Christoph Bohnen, died on Thursday night. As a consequence, she was faced with a more serious charge - one of involuntary manslaughter. She appeared in court in Manacor earlier today (Saturday). Accompanied by her lawyer, she was greatly upset and maintained that she had been driving correctly. The cyclists, she said, were to blame for the accident.
On the test for drugs that was taken after the accident, she explained that she had not smoked cannabis on the Thursday morning but had done so the previous evening.
It has emerged that Anais M.B. was arrested in 2016 as part of an anti-drugs operation but was not subsequently called to appear in court. In 2015 she tested positive for driving under the influence of cannabis and on another occasion was reported for the use of drugs.
On social media a photo of Anais M.B. taking a selfie while driving has been widely shared and been condemned. On her own Facebook wall, messages have appeared hoping that she "ends up in the slammer".
Christoph Bohnen, aged 47 and the father of two, was a regular visitor to Majorca and, for example, took part in the 2016 Ironman in Alcudia.
