Two British drivers in Spain kill their children

SVO crashes - crashes where no other motor vehicle is involved (SVO = Single Vehicle Only). The cause is usually excessive speed, impairment by alcohol, fatigue, or a combination of these factors.

And now here is the news from Spain:

British twin sisters aged nine have died in a car accident during a family holiday in Spain.

‘The car headed towards the central reservation and then, in an attempt to correct its direction, the driver made a sharp turn which led to the car overturning and rolling over several times.’

The accident happened three days after two British children, a two-year-old and a nine-month-old baby, died in a car accident in a neighbouring province.

Amir Chady Khan and his baby sister Amelle were killed instantly in the early hours of Sunday morning after their parents’ vehicle plunged down a grass bank at the side of a motorway.

Mother Gemma Martello, who was at the wheel so husband Jawad could rest,
said she dozed off seconds before the crash.
