It appears that 4 south americans in car, overtaking on the blind corner on the Los Gallardos – Garrucha road, in front on the Loma Blanca / Oasis campsite, hit an oncoming car driven by an English couple. Early reports say that the English wife died in the crash and the husband was airlifted to hospital. The 4 south Americans have been taken to hospital by ambulance.
There was another crash at the beginning of the contraflow system, Almeria bound, at the 525 exit, when a lorry jackknifed entering the contraflow causing a small pileup. No reports of casualties although an extremely large crane was called in to remove the lorry.
