Rough Day: Unlucky motorist injured after tree fell on his convertible on Spain’s Costa del Sol


AN unlucky driver has been admitted to Malaga infirmary after a tree branch fell into his convertible car yesterday afternoon.

The man, who has not yet been named, was driving along the Paseo de los Curas adjacent to the dock area in the capital when the incident took place.

Police reports released by the 112 emergency services and the Policia Local of Malaga explain that the man was driving when a large tree branch fell from the overhanging trees into his open top car.

It is thought the branch was dislodged by recent winds that have swept across the province in recent weeks.

The man was treated at the scene and was transferred to the Carlos Haya Hospital for further assessment.

The 40-year-old is thought to have suffered head injuries as well as lacerations to his arms and abdomen but it is understood his injuries are not severe.

The famous Paseo de los Curas is part of the larger Paseo del Parque.

Built at the beginning of the 19th century, the road is lined with numerous tropical and sub tropical species of trees and palms and is home to many Renaissance and Baroque architecture.
