A Brit was found hiding in roadside bushes by police after allegedly killing a moped rider in a head-on collision in Spain, reports say.

The woman, 35, was arrested on a dual carriageway near Puerto Banus, Marbella after trying to flee on foot.

Police sources say she had been driving the wrong way down the road and appeared to be so drunk that she could not be breathalysed at the scene.

The woman, believed to be local to the Costa Del Sol area, was later taken to hospital for alcohol and drug tests.

The results have not yet been made public.

The delivery driver killed in the crash, which happened at around 8:30pm on Saturday, has been named Juan David, 28, from Colombia.

Police say the woman, who has not been named, hit the moped rider about 400 metres past exit for Puerto Banus.

She then continued on for around 500 feet before getting out of her vehicle, a rented Mercedes GLA 200.

Scene footage shows emergency workers attempting to revive the moped driver as he lies on the ground near his burning vehicle.

An official was also reportedly overheard telling a passing motorist the Mercedes driver had been driving the wrong way and fled the scene after the smash.

The woman driver, thought to be from Liverpool originally, was arrested after being discovered in bushes by a nearby garage car wash.

Unconfirmed local reports said she had already called for a taxi before she was detained.

Police have yet to make any official comment about the incident but are expected to do so once the Brit has appeared in court.

She is expected to face charges including manslaughter, road traffic offences and leaving the scene of an accident.
