GUARDIA CIVIL officers arrested an alleged hit-and-run driver who seriously injured a cyclist at the end of October in Nijar.
Despite his injuries the cyclist managed to write the vehicle’s number plate in the sand where he had fallen on a country road connecting the AL-3106 with the Ramblar Alta.
Guardia Civil investigators recently traced the driver to a country property where they found the vehicle hidden and covered up, showing damage compatible with the accident.
The car, a Volkswagen Golf, also lacked an ITV inspection certificate and although the owner initially denied that it was his, he finally admitted that it belonged to him.
