Brit hit and run in Albufeira road accident

A British national was killed in the early hours of Monday morning after a hit and run at a pedestrian crossing in the main avenue in Albufeira, the police said.

The 61-year-old British citizen, who was with his son, aged 22, was taken to the Albufeira health centre, but could not be saved.

The driver was identified and detained by the police after the vehicle was found.

This was the second deadly accident involving pedestrians in Albufeira’s Avenida dos Descobrimentos in just 24 hours.

An 80-year old was also killed on Sunday morning as he tried to cross the avenue at a different point.
