A truck runs over a tollbooth in Álava and causes a fire that kills two people

A truck crashed on Thursday night against the Etxebarri Ibiña tollbooth in Álava. In the accident, two toll booths were swept away and a vehicle carrying two people was run over, who died after the car caught fire. The accident has forced the road to be cut at that height and traffic, still early in the morning on Friday, continues to be diverted by Luko towards Madrid.

According to EiTB reports, the driver, who has been slightly injured, has been transferred to the Santiago hospital in Vitoria, where he was later detained. He is charged with reckless homicide and will have to testify before the judge throughout the morning.
