Puriscal man dies in his vehicle

A 73-year-old German expat with the last name of Speger died Tuesday, and his vehicle went off the road and ended up in a ditch, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

The accident happened near the El Salto bridge outside of Liberia, the man’s presumed destination. He was a Puriscal resident, judicial agents said.

Agents said that the death may be the result of a heart attack. Investigators are trying to determine if there were marks on the pavement that indicated the man applied his brakes.
