Lorry Crash Leads To Calls For Changes To A7

This morning at 4.50am a lorry overturned on a notorious bend on the A7 near La Cala De Mijas.  The 25 year old driver was rushed to hospital where he is thought to be in a stable condition.  The crash caused 11km tailbacks on the A7, before emergency services were able to reopen the carriageway.

Proposed Changes

Locals are now calling for immediate changes to improve safety at this notorious accident black spot.  Suggestions include reducing speed limits for lorries, restricting lorries to one lane, or reducing the overall speed limit and installing traffic calming measures.

Lorry Crash

The driver was taken to hospital where is recovering.

In 2017 a lorry driver was tragically killed in a crash at the same bend, and in 2018 there were several major accidents.  Another serious crash last month also lead to the road being closed briefly.
