Fatal car crash near Can Picafort, Mallorca

The car had hit the guardrail head-on.

05-12-2021

The three young men who were killed when their car crashed on the Arta-Can Picafort road on Sunday morning have been named as Javier, Edson and Jesús.

Javier and Edson, both 22, were from Capdepera; Jesús, 25, was from Arta. The news of their deaths spread rapidly on Sunday, as many took to social media to express their grief and sorrow.

Capdepera's mayor, Rafel Fernández, said on Sunday: "In Capdepera, we are devastated. When the government delegate, Aina Calvo, called me this morning to give me the news that two of the fatalities were from here, my world fell apart. It is very hard to lose a loved one, but much more when we talk about such young people and families that are very dear to the town."

It would appear that Javier had been the driver of the Seat Ibiza that crashed into a guardrail head-on before somersaulting and colliding with a tree down an embankment.

Signaling...seems that here, signaling is a sign of weakness. Changing lanes at 120-130 on the highway like a boss. Exiting round abouts like a boss. Doing the whole round about on the first lane because they don't know how to handle it on the second lane, but not even signaling they go round and round for the ones from the inside... Oh, and the drinking and driving. All recipes for unfortunate incidents.

Pardon me, what substance were they on? I have seen tyre marks on a straight road with a very bent auto over the past 20 years, I do wonder about youth and their habits. I do not think they do it on a few too many "tinto's".

Every day I see some crazy overtaking and up the backside driving but these guys do overtaking on single lane roads like they think they’re indestructible. Sadly not the case.
