Serious accident this afternoon – Thursday – on the state road 34 of Lake Maggiore. On the border between the towns of Ghiffa and Oggebbio (at the La Sierra campsite) there was a collision between a car and a motorcycle: the worst for the 28 year old motorcyclist from Verbano who is in serious condition. The man was taken away in red code: his condition is serious and he was transferred to Turin. Firefighters, Red Cross, Municipal Police of Oggebbio and Carabinieri are on site.
From a first reconstruction of the dynamics it would seem that the motorcyclist, while he was overtaking the cars in the queue, hit a vehicle arriving in the opposite direction and was thrown to the ground.
There were long queues on the “34” and the highway was only reopened to traffic at 19.30.
