TOLEDO — Four people have been killed in a car crash caused by a driver who was going the wrong way and smashed into two other cars.
The dead were three pensioners aged 67 and another pensioner who was 76-years-old.
They were all travelling in a Renault 4 which was going the wrong way along the A-5 in Santa Cruz de Retamar, near Toledo in central Spain.
They were all neighbours in nearby Fuensalida.
Police said the tragedy, which happened at about 7.15am, was the result of a momentary slip by the driver of the Renault 4, who realised he was going the wrong way.
He tried to turn, but his car smashed into two other cars, side-on.
The drivers of the Nissan Almera and a Peugeot suffered only minor injuries.
The town council in Fuensalida was flying all flags at half-mast in memory of the four pensioners who died.
