The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has arrested, on the road RM F-42 (El Algar-Atamaría), municipality of El Algar-Cartagena, the driver of the van that fled a breath test and drove for several kilometers with serious risk for the rest of users and two of the minor occupants.

On the morning of Monday, February 12, members of the Cartagena Traffic Detachment established a blood alcohol and drug checkpoint on the RM F-42 highway (El Algar-Atamaría), at the height of El Algar, when they proceeded to give the police stop to a van.

His driver ignored the signals of the agents and started his escape by suddenly accelerating towards the population of El Algar, while driving in an anomalous way without respecting the speed stipulated for the layout of the road.

In addition, it advanced antireglatarily to other drivers and invaded the lane reserved for the opposite direction, forcing the vehicles that circulated correctly to make abrupt evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision.

Two minors were traveling in the vehicle

The excess speed maintained made the van to skid on its axis and be oriented in the opposite direction to the traffic where, despite trying to rejoin its lane, was intercepted by traffic agents before he could flee.

The agents found that, in addition to the driver, two underage passengers, family members of the detainee, were traveling in the van.

Positive in four narcotic substances
