Holidaymaker dies in tragic road traffic accident
A Scottish man has been killed in a road traffic accident while on a family holiday on the sun-soaked island of Majorca.
69-year-old William Giverin from Glasgow died from serious personal injuries when his vehicle careered off a straight stretch of road and hit a boulder near Manacor. His wife, Margaret, was driving at the time but escaped with minor injuries.
Paramedics rushed to the scene of the car accident in the south of the island but arrived too late to save the pensioner. 67-year-old Margaret was rushed to a local hospital and, after having her wounds treated, was given permission to be discharged.
It is understood that the widow is now being comforted by relatives as the couple were on an extended holiday, staying with their grown up children who live in Majorca.
Tens of thousands of Brits travel to the island at this time of year, making it one of the most popular Easter break destinations for people looking to escape the traffic jams and unpredictable weather of the UK.
Mr Giverin is the second British holidaymaker to die in a road traffic accident in Majorca in the last two days. 17-year-old Amritpal Kaura from Essex was killed in a motorcycle accident near the capital of Palma on April 11th.
