A Scots woman faces a manslaughter probe after two pals in the hire car she was driving died in a Spanish road crash.
An investigating judge quizzed Carol Anne Sievwright, 58, at a private court hearing in Alicante yesterday after she allegedly jumped a red light and was hit by a bus.
Passengers Jean Hardy, 71, and Margaret Clarke, 62, died instantly when the bus smashed into their Fiat Panda around 11pm on Monday.
Mrs Sievwright, originally from Auchencairn, Dumfriesshire, suffered shock and bruising.
Another female passenger, Sheila Johnson, from Suffolk, was also injured.
The dead women were travelling in the back of the hire car, which ended up on its roof after being hit by the bus.
Police said they believed the car driver had jumped a red light and was crossing the main carriageway to try to change direction when the accident occurred.
The four British women, thought to live in San Fulgencio, are believed to have driven from nearby Alicante airport.
Dramatic TV images showed the car on its roof by the side of the road and the dead women's bodies wrapped in blankets near an ambulance. No one on the passenger bus was injured.
A police spokesman said: "Our understanding is a bus hit a car which was trying to change direction and had jumped a red light.
"Four British women were in the car. The bus hit the back of the car, which was where the two women who died were seated.
"The front seat passenger was injured along with the driver.
"The driver, who was not seriously hurt, has been handed over to a judge heading a double manslaughter probe."
A source close to the case added: "The circumstances are still being investigated. But it may be that the women took a wrong turn and jumped the light in their confusion.
"The car was a hire car and it's possible the driver was unfamiliar with the area."
Mrs Sievwright was released on bail after giving a statement to the investigating judge yesterday.
She is thought to have told the court she remembers little about the accident - and wasn't aware she had allegedly jumped a red light.
She passed a breath test at the crash scene.
Mrs Sievwright is expected to be called back to the court at a later date to give more evidence before the investigating judge makes a recommendation on whether she should face trial.
She has not been charged with any crime at this stage.
