Guardia Civil Traffic Police in Badajoz recently cleared up a traffic accident where a pedestrian was killed. On the 6th of December 2015, at about 08.00 hours, a dead body was found on highway A-5. The corpse belonged to a 49 years old Spanish male, showing critical injuries. The autopsy report certified that the death was caused by a strong impact, being the injuries compatible with a vehicle strike. Investigators, after a long hard process, were able to identify traces found in the corpse and in the accident spot, which after being accordingly analysed, showed that the deceased had been run over by a bus. Finally, the vehicle involved was identified, and then, the driver detained and charged for committing various offences against the Penal Code.
