Ibiza's roads have claimed their 17th victim of the year. On Friday morning yet another young man lost his life whilst walking home along the island's notorious 'Disco Road'. Witnesses say that the young man was walking with his back to the traffic when he suddenly veered into the road where he was hit by a bus and died on the spot. Ironically the vehicle which killed him was the articulated bus used by Privilege to ferry clubbers to and from the disco thus avoiding the need to walk along this dangerous highway! At this moment in time this poor young man is lying unidentified in a morgue, he was alone and carrying no papers or means of identification, and no-one has yet been reported missing. The tragedy is that his friends probably think he's dancing away in Space and his family probably think he's having a great time somewhere. We ask you all to remember this tragedy and please be as careful here as at home.

As a post script to this story we have just received news that the young man involved was a 17 year old British tourist, but the police have not yet made public any further details until his family have been informed.
