The car crash that isn't

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS - By Sa­man­tha Kett

A 'CAR crash' next to a Gata de Gor­gos round­about which ap­pears to have been left un­cleared has caused a num­ber of driv­ers to slow down for a closer look – but in fact, the ve­hi­cle ap­par­ently stuck bon­net­side down is merely an op­ti­cal il­lu­sion.

Whilst ac­ci­dents in­volv­ing cars veer­ing off the CV-734 traf­fic is­land are fairly com­mon, in this case, the up­side-down mo­tor is in fact a 3D ad­ver­tis­ing bill­board which has blown down in the re­cent storms.

The plac­ard is next to the gi­ant Carrefour ad­vert, and its strange ap­pear­ance has led to a hand­ful of passers-by call­ing the po­lice to re­port a road smash.

Lo­cal Span­ish me­dia sources are now spread­ing the word that the flipped-over car is just a bro­ken bill­board, in or­der to prevent fu­ture calls to emer­gency ser­vices.
