Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

A 54-year-old Moroc­can man was killed and a 42-year-old man in­jured when they were hit by a van while they were work­ing.

Both men were pour­ing ce­ment into the foun­da­tions of Al­coy's new Aldi su­per­mar­ket, lo­cated on Calle Ter­rasa, when the ac­ci­dent hap­pened.

The van didn't stop where it was meant to and hit both work­ers. One was killed in­stantly, while the other was taken to a nearby hos­pi­tal with bruised ribs.

The driver of the van also re­ceived med­i­cal at­ten­tion for a panic at­tack.

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing to find out if the ac­ci­dent was caused by hu­man or me­chan­i­cal er­ror.
