Female scooter rider hit by bus in Spain's Benidorm in Costa Blanca

The woman was killed as she rode on the junction between Avenidas Villajoyosa and Murtal.

The incident happened on Monday morning just after 8 40am.

The woman was a 29 year old Spanish citizen and was on the designated bikeway when a bus veered into her.

It is unclear if the bus drove onto the bikeway or if it turned into a road and didn’t see the woman.

Paramedics couldn’t revive her after the blunt trauma and died at the scene.

This was confirmed by Benidorm police.

Scooter and bicycle deaths are a serious problem around the south coast of Spain with a cyclist being killed by a hit and run driver on the Ap-7 near Estepona in July and a 66 year old cyclist was killed in Torrevieja by a car in 2014.

And last year a scooter rider was killed in Alicante after the 61 year old collided with a car.

He wasn’t wearing a helmet and had no lights on.
