Sow panic when driving drunk at full speed through the outer enclosure of the Regional Hospital of Vélez-Málaga

He has been in tremendous fright, but it could have been a real tragedy. A drunk driver has acceded at full speed to the premises of the Regional Hospital of La Axarquía, causing panic among pedestrians and workers, until he has hit a curb and busted one of the wheels. The events took place on the afternoon of this Friday. It has been the security guards of the health center who have retained, in the first instance, the two occupants of the vehicle, a red Volkswagen Golf. Apparently, the two young people, of Spanish nationality, had been circulating recklessly from Torre del Mar.

When performing the breathalyzer test, the driver has produced a positive result of 0.64, almost three times more than the maximum allowed, as reported by the digital newspaper Axarquíaplus. The patrols of the Local Police stationed in the place have proceeded to immobilize the car, to prepare the corresponding certificate. Fortunately, there has been no personal injury, only material damage. The car has rolled several bollards and planters. Apparently, after breaking the wheel, the two occupants have gotten out of the car to change it. It has been at that time when they have been retained by the guards, after the warning of the pedestrians and workers of the health center.

The sources consulted have explained that the driver has also been denounced for the alleged possession of narcotic substances, while the co-pilot has opened an act for alleged possession of white weapons. Apparently, the vehicle was conducting illegal races with another car in the vicinity of the health center. The hospital manager, Antonio Cansino, has congratulated the security professionals of the center «for its effectiveness in this action», while personally thanking the mayor of Veleño, Antonio Moreno (PSOE), «the quick response» of the Local Police agents.
