The violent road accident that took place earlier this evening in Santa Cruz, on the highway between Porto Novo and Caniço, caused five injuries, at least one of which was considered to be very serious.
Two of the victims were imprisoned in one of the three vehicles that were involved in the incident. And it was precisely one of the people trapped in the car that has more serious injuries.
As a consequence of the accident, the Funchal – Santa Cruz highway is completely blocked. Witnesses on the ground report to the JM that there are drivers conducting the dangerous turn-around maneuver on the fast lane, in order to escape the ‘blockage’.
