Crazy car crash in front of shopping center Puerto Rico: Caught on Camera!

A car rolled over on the main roundabout in the centre of popular Mogán tourist resort Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria, this afternoon.  It is not yet clear if anyone was hurt.

This exclusive picture sent to us just after 3pm on Friday afternoon shows a “Puerto Rico” branded vehicle having suffered an accident leaving the car on its side and facing the wrong way on the roundabout in front of the big screen at the Shopping Center Puerto Rico.

Though emergency services were yet to arrive, no injuries have yet been reported.
