A young driver escaped death on Saturday morning, after his car went down a ravine and he suffered multiple injuries.
He managed to escape through a window, as he was not wearing a seatbelt .
The incident happened at around 11.00 am in the Orihuela area on the road that links the N-340 to the Ociopia shopping centre.
Reports suggested that the car was travelling over the speed limit, and that the motorist lost control of the vehicle which then flipped over a number of times down the embankment.
The unnamed driver was taken to the Vega Baja Hospital to be treated for multiple injuries.
