Allegedly drunk and drugged driver who fatally mowed down road workers on trial



The Provincial Court of Valencia will begin to hear evidence from today, Tuesday, against a man for whom the Prosecutor’s Office is requesting five years in prison for two crimes of reckless homicide, since he is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs and fatally running over two road workers.

The events occurred around 10:30 p.m. on October 19, 2022, when the defendant was driving a vehicle on the AP-7 towards Valencia at high speed, erratically and continually changing lanes.

The Prosecutor’s Office reports that, at kilometre 473, in the municipality of Sagunto, the defendant collided with the cones that road maintenance workers were placing at that time, in a duly marked construction area.

His vehicle then hit the back of a van and ran over two of the workers, who died instantly from the injuries caused by the collision.

The public prosecution maintains that the man tested positive for cocaine and alcohol.
