Nurse killed in commuter crash
A nurse at Dénia hospital has died in a car crash whilst on her way to work from her home in El Verger.
Rosalía B., 40, crashed into a pine tree on the CV-722 – the back road from Ondara to Dénia – at around noon on Monday, and was still alive when firefighters cut her free from the wreckage.
But she died minutes later before paramedics could get her to hospital.
The impact was so violent that the front of her car was completely destroyed.
Colleagues at Dénia hospital, particularly in the pathology and anatomy department where she worked, are said to be distraught.
The crash happened in the Pont de la Fusta area, close to where a small forest fire broke out at the weekend.
