A car overturned this Saturday morning on the GC-500, between Arguineguín and Patalavaca, in the southern Gran Canaria municipality of Mogán, it seems no one was seriously hurt.

An SUC ambulance from the Canarian Emergency Services attended the scene along with Guardia Civil and the Local Police. 

The roads this morning were slick after the night’s rainfall and so this has been suggested as having possible played a part in the accident, although it is not currently clear what actually caused the car to leave the road, smash through the caged-rocks lining the pedestrian pavements and then end up on its roof.

Quick to voice their opinion, undoubtedly with one eye on next years local elections, a Nuevo Canaria spokesperson for Mogán is reported as declaring the accident “highlights the lack of security in the renovation works carried out on this busy tourist [walkway]”, referring to works on the coastal pedestrian walk that started back in July 2017, and which nobody seems really sure is finished or not.
