TRAGEDY struck in the Murcia district of Beniajan this Wednesday when a man ran over his wife while reversing his car.

The 75-year-old victim died instantly.

The fatal accident happened in the driveway of a property on Calle Nieves Viudes.

The man was backing out his vehicle which had an automatic gear system.

He then inadvertently ploughed into his wife.

Emergency services received a call at 10.47 am but paramedics were unable to revive her.

The Murcia Policia Local are investigating what happened with one unsubstantiated theory suggesting there may have been a fault with the car’s gears.

Psychological counselling is being provided to the widower and family members.
