Another cabbie, who would not give his name, said: One of the drivers was at the scene just after. He saw the cab all smashed up against the pillar, with the drivers body still inside the vehicle. Its horrific. Some people from nearby flats came running out when they heard the crash. The death happened shortly after midnight at a disused petrol station yards from a 24-hour caf used by cab drivers. Police are trying to trace the drivers next of kin to establish if he was a genuine black cab driver. Officers are not treating the death as suspicious but are still investigating. E Continued from Page 1 tourist gored to death by a bull in spain Last moment: Daniel Romero, circled, just before he was fatally gored since 1911. The last goring fatality was an American tourist in 1995 and a man was trampled to death by a crowd in 2003. A TOURIST was gored to death today during the traditional bull-running festival in Pamplona, northern Spain. The animal gored Daniel Romero in the lungs and the back of his neck during the fourth bull run of this years San Fermn Festival. A London man, aged 20, was also gored in his left thigh and two others were injured while participating in the run. The death occurred when a light brown bull named Capuchino broke away from the main pack of bulls and careered into a group of runners and spectators. Spaniard Mr Romero, aged 27, lived near Madrid. Paramedics tried to revive him in the street before taking him to hospital, where he died shortly after emergency surgery. Television footage showed a bull flip- ping a man, then goring him as he lay curled in a ball on the ground. Experienced runners tried to distract the animal by pulling its tail and smack- ing it with sticks. Pamplona is famed worldwide for its annual running of the bulls event, which takes place as part of the nine-day fes- tival. The bulls are herded along the citys cobbled streets to the bullring, where they are killed in the evening. Fifteen people have died at the festival HH index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html
