FOUR people have died, including a teen, and eight others injured after a family was allegedly mowed down by a guest during a brawl at a wedding in Spain.
The horror incident took place at a restaurant in the suburbs of Madrid, according to sources from the emergency services.
It’s believed a brawl broke out between two people and quickly escalated into a fight on to Avenida de la Constitución in Torrejón de Ardoz.
During the tussle, a vehicle drove at full speed down the street, running over members of the same family on several occasions.
Four people – a 70-year-old woman and three men aged 40, 60 and 17 – died from fractures and multiple injuries.
Emergency services were called out to the scene at 2.44am local time this morning.
Among the injured included two middle-aged men with leg and pelvic fractures and two women with head injuries.
Two others received “potentially serious injuries,” according to the emergency services.
The 35-year-old driver of the vehicle that allegedly caused the deaths has been arrested by the Civil Guard in Seseña.
He was stopped several hours after the incident about 25 miles away.
Two teenagers, aged 16 and 15, who were also in the car at the time were arrested. Police believe there might have been a fourth person on the run.
According to local paper Heraldo, the vehicle was completely destroyed by the hit-and-run and was said to still have some of the remains of the victims on it.
Police are said to have also found around £5000 euros meant as a wedding gift for the bride and groom.
The incident is being investigated by agents of the Homicide Group and the Scientific Police Brigade of the National Police.
Footage from the scene shows scores of ambulances and emergency workers helping victims.
A total of 22 health teams attended the scene.
