Seven people have been injured of varying severity on Wednesday afternoon in Alcobendas after a quad [all-terrain vehicle on four wheels] has run over several neighbors on the terrace of a bar in the Plaza del Pueblo. The rollover took place around 19:30 p.m., when the driver of the quad lost control of the vehicle, invaded the road and ran over several pedestrians and citizens who were on a terrace.
In total, seven people have had to receive medical assistance, three of whom have been discharged at the scene, while the other four have been transferred to hospitals in the region.
The most seriously injured is the driver of the quad, a young man of about 25 years, who has suffered severe head trauma and possible serious abdominal trauma. After being intubated on the spot by Summa-112 health workers, he is in critical condition at the Hospital de La Paz. In addition, a 75-year-old man, who had a fracture in the shoulder and a mild head trauma, and a 36-year-old man, who has suffered an open fracture in the left leg and probable fracture of the pelvis, have been evacuated to the Ramón y Cajal Hospital with a potentially serious prognosis.
Finally, another 48-year-old man had neck pain and, after being treated at the scene, has been transferred by the Red Cross to the Infanta Sofia Hospital, where he has been admitted with a mild prognosis.
Local Police agents in the place have taken charge of the investigation.
