Lejarreta case: Driver of car positive for drugs

The accident that ended mountain biker Iñaki Lejarreta's life on Sunday might have been fuelled by drugs.

Various Spanish and Basque media today report that the driver of the Renault Clio which crashed into the 29-year-old on the N-634 road in Iurreta failed a drug test after the fatal accident. However, the positive test might have been triggered by medication the 22-year-old driver was on.

According to the ever well-informed El Diario Vasco, sources close to the driver of the car have confirmed a medical certificate was presented at the time of the analysis.

Local police are therefore awaiting the outcome of further tests before they can tell what caused the preliminary positive.
