A 71 year man has died and a 73 year old woman was seriously injured when part of the load of lorry carrying construction materials along the N-340 in Torremolinos fell upon them. The couple were walking near Aquapark. It’s not known how the lorry lost part of its load at 10,40am on Monday morning, but it is clear that the load slipped and some of it fell from the lorry and fell to the pavement hitting the couple. The Local Police and health crews certified the man’s death when they arrived at the scene and the woman was taken urgently to the Clinico Universitario in Málaga where she has been admitted in a serious condition with diverse trauma, head injuries and a broken tibia. She is expected to undergo surgery later today.
