Catalan police stopped a man from driving on the wrong road and found a dead body in the passenger seat next to him.
The 66-year-old suddenly turned around at the checkpoint between Spain and France yesterday and started driving on the wrong side of the highway. Investigators believe that the deceased has passed away at the age of 88 for about three weeks, and the driver may have taken him back to Switzerland.
The body of the deceased is believed to be the driver’s partner and has begun to decompose. He wrote that it was covered by a blanket and a seat belt was fastened. British Broadcasting Corporation.
Today, an autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death, although investigators do not believe there is evidence of a crime.
Based on the toll card and parking fee receipt, investigators suspected that the driver of his dead partner was driving to various places in Spain and even Italy.
The police arrested a driver with dual Swiss/Spanish citizenship. He is currently being prosecuted only for traffic violations.
