A man who tried to climb into a parked lorry has died in Petrer, Alicante Province. The driver had pulled over on the A-31 when the 40 year-old tried to get into the cab. The driver sped off, leaving the man outside the vehicle, clinging to a side mirror. The lorry picked up speed over 3 kilometres and then slammed on the breaks, catapulting the man onto the road. He later died of his injuries. The driver has been charged with negligent homicide and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
