ONE person died after three cars were struck on the AP-7 by part of a bridge fence that had fallen down onto the AP-7 motorway in Alicante Province.

The incident happened at around 2.45 on Sunday morning on the section of motorway passing through the Algorfa area in the south of the region.

A car travelling on the CV-905 bridge roundabout clattered into the fence, with a section coming down onto the AP-7.

The errant motorist drove off as the detached fence toppled over.

Two vehicles travelling on the south-bound carriageway towards La Zenia were struck by the fencing and another on the Elche-bound carriageway.

A Belgian woman who was in the passenger seat of the Elche-bound car died, while the driver and a child suffered slight injuries.

Three people travelling in the other two vehicles sustained minor injuries.

The Guardia Civil have not yet located the bridge motorist who fled the scene.
