A head-on collision on the TF629, the subida a la Villa de Arico, early this morning left a 42-year-old man dead and another of 23 years of age injured. Emergency services say that they were called out just after half past six with reports of the accident and that people were trapped in their vehicles. Bomberos were required to cut the occupants free but sadly one of them suffered a cardiac arrest at the scene and ambulance crew were unable to save him. The other victim suffered multiple injuries particular to the head: he was transferred to Candelaria Hospital where his condition is said not to be life-threatening.
