A DRAMATIC increase in the number of road deaths in Malaga has lead the Junta de Andalucia to assess the region’s road safety.
Torrential storms have been blamed for five deaths in just five days last week.
A 52-year-old man plummeted 200 metres after losing control of his vehicle in the Montes de Malaga mountain range on Sunday.
Two others died in separate accidents in Alhaurin el Grande and Velez Malaga during last Thursday’s stormy weather.
And a married couple were killed a day earlier when they fell 80 meters into a ravine on the Camino de los Moros.
