One person has died and three others have been injured after an accident that occurred around 9.00pm on Wednesday evening at the entrance to Xàbia, between the roundabout of the industrial estate and that of El Paso which gives access to Poble Nou de Benitatxell. At the time of writing, the cause of the accident remains unknown, but it was clear that the vehicle left the road for some reason.

XAD has learned that the four people are members of the same family and, for reasons that are unknown at this time, they have suffered an accident. As a result, one of them, a woman, has died, whilst two of the occupants have been seriously injured; the fourth suffered minor injuries. All the injured were taken to the hospital and, at the moment, their condition is unknown.

As a result of the accident, the Guardia Civil of Jávea ordered the temporary closure of the Gata road in both directions during the rescue of the injured; it re-opened at around 10.30pm. The Policía Local also participated in the operation, although the investigation of the cause is assumed by the Guardia Civil as it is a regional road.
