Brit holidaymaker killed and boyfriend fighting for life ‘after being mowed down by 4×4’ in Majorca – Rip News
A BRITISH holidaymaker has reportedly died and her partner has been critically injured after being mown down by a 4×4 in Majorca.
The couple were said to be waiting to walk across a pedestrian crossing outside Palma Cathedral when they were struck down.
The driver of the 4×4 Opel Frontera has been described as a 35-year-old woman and the two victims are being identified locally as British tourists.
The vehicle is said to have mounted a paved area in the middle of the seafront dual-carriageway around 6pm local time and hit a traffic light before stopping around 100 metres away.
The man has been rushed to a hospital in Palma.
Attempts to revive the woman at the scene were not successful.
Several ambulances as well as local police responded to emergency calls.
Last Thursday a 50-year-old British woman died in hospital in Tenerife four days after being mown down by a hit-and-run driver in Tenerife.
Her 75-year-old mum was also injured but survived.
Police are still believed to be hunting the white van driver who knocked them down on a pavement in the south of the island and drove off.
It comes as a couple died of carbon monoxide poisoning at the farmhouse in Majorca they moved to last year, a post-mortem has confirmed.
Michael Rowan, 62, and his 56-year-old partner Sharon Price were found lifeless at the country property near the picturesque town of Selva.
The grisly discovery was only made on Monday after their worried son, who lives in the UK, couldn’t contact them.
