Law/Patents - Insurance / Vehicle accident report
Spanish term or phrase: EN LA CTRA. A1- KM 59,5, S/N
Surprised not to find this on Kudos- probably not looking in the right place.

This is where the accident took place. My first problem is whether to translate s/n or just leave it (after all, if there isn´t a number then there isn´t a number....) especially since the km identifies the spot. But how to translate the "punto kilométrico"? I can explain the meaning (59.5 kilometres along the A1) but that won´t do! And kilometric point sounds so strange...
TIA!

Explanation:
This is in support of Miguel's answer - Just wanted to checkout if there's no possibility of S/N it meaning dirección sur a norte? Si no es así, I would not mention it. In England what you DO mention in these cases would probably be the closest junction or between what 2 junctions the accident occurred.
y belated Happy Easter.
