Instruction Court No. 1 in Torremolinos has ordered that the car driver accused of causing a fatal coach accident in Benalmádena three years ago is to stand trial. Nine Finnish tourists died and another 26 people were injured when his four wheel drive vehicle collided with the coach on the A-7 motorway to Málaga in April 2008, causing the coach to turn over.

He now faces nine counts of involuntary manslaughter through serious negligence, another 26 of causing injury, negligent driving and driving under the influence of alcohol. La Opinión de Málaga reports that the car driver, J.G.R., tested positive for alcohol and was driving at more than 150 kph, when the limit on the road was 120 kph.

It’s understood that the state prosecution and the private accusation have both applied for a four year prison term and a ban from driving for six years.
