The Spanish Civil Guard investigates the case of a 29-year-old man in Malaga for driving at 295 kilometers per hour on the AP7 Mediterranean highway.

According to a press release from the Ministry of the Interior, the suspect also carried out various dangerous maneuvers, such as zigzag overtaking or driving through the side of the road, which put the lives of other road users at risk.

The driver, along with the proceedings, has been placed at the disposal of a Court of Fuengirola (Malaga).
