A WOMAN has been killed and six others injured after a drunk driver careered off the road and into a childrens playground in Benalmadena. 

Witnesses say a 35-year-old Ukranian woman was carried along the car bonnet for several seconds before she slid off and was run over.

She was rushed to Hospital Clinico but died from her injuries this morning.

Five of the others injured, including a two-year-old boy, are said to be fine, but one woman has had her leg broken.

The crash occured on Avenida Estrella del Mar on Monday night after the driver attempted to turn a corner at the street’s confluence with Ronda del Golf Oeste.

Police have confirmed he was three times over the legal alcohol limit.

He has since been arrested and is waiting to be charged.
