Juan Pedro Domecq Solis, owner of Spain's oldest and most prestigious bull-breeding operation, died Monday in a traffic accident near his Lo Alvaro ranch in the southern province of Huelva, family sources said. He was 69.

The Civil Guard told Efe that the accident occurred about 12:10 p.m. on highway A-433.

For reasons that are not yet known, the SUV the rancher was driving crashed head-on into an oncoming truck.

The driver of the truck was injured in the crash and taken by helicopter to the regional Riotinto hospital, where he was reported to be in guarded condition.

Juan Pedro Domecq Solis, who was the president of the Fighting-Bull Breeders Union from 1984 to 1994, inherited the breeding operation founded by his grandfather Juan Pedro Domecq y Nuñez de Villavicencio, who in 1939 bought the legendary Veragua brand.
