The unnamed driver, who is 26 years old, was reportedly driving his Skoda Fabia at around 200 kph when he lost control of the vehicle and drove it off a cliff.

Reports state pedestrians had to run out of the way of the car before it fell off the cliff and a group of passing cyclists then jumped into the water to rescue the driver.

The driver reportedly admitted he had taken drugs and alcohol before driving, but the drugs were not specified. He said nobody else had been in the car with him.

Officers from the local police of Llucmajor, the Spanish Civil Guard and firefighters went to the scene to help the victim. In the video, firefighter divers can be seen swimming to the Skoda in the ocean to confirm there were no more victims.
