Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

An hor­rific smash on the Gan­dia-Barx road left two pen­sion­ers dead and a whole fam­ily in­jured, traf­fic po­lice re­ported on Fri­day morn­ing.

The force of the im­pact was so great that the dead cou­ple's Ford Fi­esta was flung sky­wards and landed on a nearby gar­den wall.

It was found strad­dling the dry-stone struc­ture and so badly crushed that the bod­ies were trapped be­tween pan­els.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called out at around 20.15 the night be­fore to the CV-675, which links Barx de la Valldigna with the up-mar­ket Marx­u­quera ur­ban­i­sa­tion af­ter two cars col­lided headon.

Three women aged 30, 37 and 70 and a three-year-old girl trav­el­ling in a Ré­nault Es­pace were taken to hos­pi­tal with mul­ti­ple cuts and bruises.

Paramedics at the scene con­firmed that the cou­ple who had to be cut free from the Fi­esta, a 74-year-old woman and a man aged 76, had been killed in­stantly.

Just hours later, at noon on Fri­day, a woman aged 74 had to be cut free from the wreck­age of her car af­ter she veered off the CV-50 in the neigh­bour­ing town of Tav­ernes de la Valldigna in a sin­gle-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent, po­lice re­veal.
