Spanish couple travelling in India meets with accident in Thrissur

Thrissur: A Spanish couple, who were travelling across the world on bicycle, met with an accident in Thrissur. A car hit the bike that Luis and Maria were travelling at Chavakkad. Maria broke her leg and injured her back in the accident.

Doctors at a private hospital in Thrissur, where Maria is undergoing treatment, have said that she will need an operation. Luis is struggling as he does not know the language and does not have enough money. There are some legal complications too.

The couple is visiting India for the third time. They were planning to reach Goa through Kerala by new year. They rented a bike as the roads in Kerala did not suit bicycle rides and because their journey was getting delayed. They were travelling from Kochi to Kozhikode.

Luis and Maria began their journey from home on April 3. They reached India after travelling through France, Italy, Slovakia, Croatia, Turkey, Georgia, Iran, Dubai and Oman.
