8 Romanians dead in road accident in Spain

Eight Romanians – three men, three women, and two children – died in a road accident in Spain on Tuesday, according to the online edition of Spanish newspaper ABC. The minibus carrying the Romanian citizens collided with a motor truck traveling on the oncoming lane. The accident occurred at kilometer 543 on the A-7 highway, near Alicante, at 6:40 p.m. local time (5:40 p.m. Romanian time). The minibus caught on fire and was completely burnt. The Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated early Wednesday that the eight deceased Romanians have all been identified. The identification procedure was carried out based on information provided by relatives and checks conducted at the Airport in Valencia, where the Romanians were scheduled to fly with Wizzair toward Romania on June 22, 2014, 9:40 p.m. At present, representatives of the Romanian Embassy in Madrid and the Consulate at Castellon de la Plana, in collaboration with Spanish authorities, are verifying the hypothesis of an existing ninth victim, supposedly the driver, who was also in the minibus, according to the victims’ relatives.
