Grief in Arta and Capdepera Following Fatal Road Accident

The three young men who were killed when their car crashed on the Arta-Can Picafort road on Sunday morning have been named as Javier, Edson and Jesús.

Javier and Edson, both 22, were from Capdepera; Jesús, 25, was from Arta. The news of their deaths spread rapidly on Sunday, as many took to social media to express their grief and sorrow.
