A BRITISH holidaymaker has reportedly died and her partner has been critically injured after being mown down by a 4×4 em Maiorca.
The couple were said to be waiting to walk across a pedestrian crossing outside Palma Cathedral when they were struck down.
The driver of the 4×4 Opel Frontera has been described as a 35-year-old woman and the two victims are being identified locally as britânico tourists.
The vehicle is said to have mounted a paved area in the middle of the seafront dual-carriageway around 6pm local time and hit a traffic light before stopping around 100 metres away.
The man has been rushed to a hospital in Palma.
Attempts to revive the woman at the scene were not successful.
Several ambulances as well as local police responded to emergency calls.
Last Thursday a 50-year-old British woman died in hospital in Tenerife four days after being mown down by a hit-and-run driver in Tenerife.
Her 75-year-old mum was also injured but survived.
Police are still believed to be hunting the white van driver who knocked them down on a pavement in the south of the island and drove off.
