The Civil Guard has stopped at Alicante to a truck driver for allegedly killing another man after driving at 100 kilometers per hour with the victim hanging from a rearview mirror for three kilometers.
Agents found the injured man on the road and, next to it, there were tire brake tracks. After being taken to the hospital, the victim died from the severity of the injuries sustained.
As reported by the Armed Institute, everything began after a pelea with a wayfarer in a rest area for vehicles. The truck driver allegedly drove for almost three kilometers at more than 100 kilometers per hour with the pedestrian hanging from one of the rear-view mirrors, while he tried to get into the cabin.
Agents determined during the investigation that what it looked like a car accident It turned out to be the product of an altercation between the two involved. The detainee is charged with a crime of reckless homicide and another of omission of the duty of assistance.
Investigators do not know why the now-deceased man assaulted the driver, although there was no previous relationship between them. The proceedings have been handed over to the Court of Instruction 3 of Elda, which, for the time being, has decreed freedom with charges for the alleged perpetrator.
The facts occurred last June 3, at 05:48 hours, when witnesses notified the Civil Guard, through the 112 emergency telephone number, that a man with very serious injuries was lying on the road. Apparently it was a pedestrian hit.
Upon arriving at the scene of the events, at the exit of the A-31 towards Las Salinetas, at kilometer 204,700 which passes through the municipality of Petrer, the agents found the victim on the road next to the traces of a braking produced by tires.
The specialists verified that the braking was recent, probably a few minutes before the call that alerted 112. In addition, they found that, after the impact, the vehicle had fled at high speed, abandoning the victim to his fate, without help, at night and in a poorly lit area.
The man was transferred still alive to the General University Hospital of Alicante, as soon as he was found. However, he lost his life the day after what happened.
