Foreign cycling accident in Spain leaves 6 injured

Spanish police have charged a 73 year old British woman with imprudence and reckless driving after her car was involved in a collision with the Giant-Alpecin team, injuring six riders

The incident left six professional cyclists and their bikes scattered and broken on the local road.

On the sunny Saturday afternoon, the woman crossed from the opposite side of the CV-720 provincial road leading to Alicante, near Benigembla, and collided with the cyclists head on. A source working on the investigation said that she was driving a British-style car with the steering wheel on the right side.

Though not releasing her name, police explained that the woman lives in Spain six months of the year and six months at home in Great Britain.

Whether a motorist has emerged into your path, turned across your path or just collided with you due to negligent driving.
