Two people in “serious condition” following third head-on collision on EN125 this month

One person was injured and another two people were left in “serious condition” following another horrific head-on collision today (May 22) on the notorious EN125 road, authorities have confirmed.

The accident happened at around 1.55pm near Sítio das Pereiras in Almancil.

Traffic on the road has been cut off while authorities investigate the scene, CDOS Faro told the Resident.

The causes of the accident are still unclear.

All that is known is that the three victims are Portuguese and aged between 65 and 75.

They have since been taken to Faro Hospital.

Algarve musician Miguel Drago was killed in a head-on collision near AlgarveShopping a few weeks ago; 57-year-old bus driver Sérgio Catarino died after crashing into a house on the side of the road near Guia in April 30 and a week ago a man died and another was injured in a similar head-on crash near Almancil.

Anti-toll movement CUVI has since announced a new calendar of protests, starting off with a commemoration for last month’s victims tomorrow (see story
