The Facebook page of Anais Marco Batalla has been deleted. The 28-year-old, now in prison because of the death of cyclist Christoph Bohnen last Thursday, had been subjected to insults on her profile. It was open and anyone could comment.
Friends came to her defence, particularly when a selfie taken while she was driving began to circulate on social media. Among comments directed at her was one that suggested she looks like a typical "brat girl" who thinks she's got everything sorted without having to lift a finger. On the Porsche Cayenne that she was driving when she collided with the group of cyclists last Thursday, the same person observed that this was "like putting a 15-year-old kid in charge of a tank".
There were also posts on Twitter. One included an image of a business card for her cleaning company. There won't be any more contracts for its services, the post suggested.
Anais Marco Batalla maintained in court that she had been blinded by the sun. At the moment she was adjusting the sun visor, she collided with the cyclists. She said that she had smoked cannabis the night before but not on the morning of the accident. The Guardia Civil found the stubs of five joints in the vehicle. She said that these were her boyfriend's.
Twenty-two days before the accident, she was given a fine for having been driving under the influence of drugs in March 2015. Her driving licence was also withdrawn for a year. However, the sanction had yet to take effect, and so she had been able to continue driving.
