Two back-seat passengers in the white Range Rover, two men aged 32 and 45 whose nationalities are not yet known, were rushed to hospital after being seriously injured.

The 4×4 is said to have smashed head-on into a dustbin lorry in the opposite carriageway as it overtook a Kia with two women inside.

The accident happened near a karting circuit called Go-Karts Santa Eulalia, located on the main road between Ibiza and Santa Eulalia.

The tragedy happened around 4am local time this morning.

Harrowing footage from the scene showed what the remains of the wrecked Range Rover being loaded onto a tow truck.

The second car involved in the crash is also thought to have been written off.

The deaths of the two people were confirmed by a spokesman for the local emergency health response service, who also confirmed three more were left injured.

The spokesman said: “Two people died at the scene. A 32-year-old who was seriously injured was transferred to Can Misses Hospital in Ibiza Town.

“A 45-year-old was transferred seriously injury to a private clinic and a 23-year-old with minor injuries was also taken to Can Misses.”

The Civil Guard are said to have launched an investigation.

Initial local reports claim that officers are looking into whether the Range Rover had overtaken the other vehicle in an area where it is deemed illegal to do so.
