A drunk driver has been arrested over the death of two people on the V-23 highway in Sagunto on Sunday night.

The intoxicated motorist, 31, was found to be four-times over the alcohol limit.

He’s been charged with two counts of homicide, serious negligence, flouting road safety, and drink-driving.

The Ecuadorian citizen, who is living in Spain, smashed into the back of a car that caught fire.
