A car ended up in a souvenir shop in Playa Blanca yesterday afternoon after an “error” by the driver.

Yaiza Ayuntamiento explained that the incident occurred a “slip” while the driver was attempting to park on the Avenida Papagayo.

The slip involved the car mounting the pavement, steps and a disabled ramp and entering the shop.

Local police and firemen first closed off the area, ensured the vehicle’s battery was disconnected and assessed the damage, establishing that there was a risk that the shop’s awning might collapse. The car was later removed by the grua (tow truck).  

 No one was injured and the driver later tested negative for alcohol.
