Briton killed by car in Majorca
Tuesday 21 September 2010
A British man was run over and killed by his partner's ex-husband in an accident on the Spanish island of Majorca.
Peter Davies, who was in his 60s, was in a car park in the island's main city of Palma when the incident took place on Sunday.
He reportedly had a good relationship with his partner's ex-husband - believed to be Spanish - and sources said police are treating the collision as accidental.
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We can confirm the death of a British national, Peter Davies, in Majorca on September 19.
"Next of kin are aware and we are providing consular assistance to the family."
Mr Davies had been lying on the ground near the entrance to the subterranean car park, where both men left their cars, when the vehicle ran him over.
He is believed to have fainted or fallen beforehand as a result of knee injuries he was suffering.
His partner's ex-husband described seeing a strange shape pass near him as he entered the car park, according to local press.
After the accident he reportedly ran out into the street to ask for help and flagged down a passing ambulance.
Mr Davies is understood to have been taken to Palma's Son Dureta hospital where he died a few hours later.
