Several accidents and breakdowns marked the Orvecame Rally which was held on Saturday on the island. Among them, the most memorable and shocking was the accident in a Ford Fiesta driven by Alejandro Betancort, with several spectacular rollovers.
The car suffered a forward impact and did several turns until it stopped completely. The heavy impact caused the driver to be trapped inside the vehicle and firefighters were deployed to cut him free.
Despite the spectacular overturning, both occupants of the vehicle were unharmed but his co-pilot Yeray Brito was taken to Valterra hospital for suspected concussion and remained there under 24 hour observation.
