His heart stopped beating yesterday morning at the Umberto I polyclinic. Elena Baruti, the 18-year-old student, was cut down by a car on Thursday evening while crossing the street. The schoolmates of the high school Julius Caesar had organized an urgent blood collection to save her, but her condition (which immediately appeared very serious) plummeted in the night between Saturday and Sunday.
Rome, blood on the asphalt: four victims of road accidents in four days, they are an 18-year-old and three motorcyclists
The accident occurred at the intersection of via Nomentana with via di Sant’Agnese, shortly after 21. The driver who hit her was in an Audi A1 and stopped immediately to call for help. The Capitoline prosecutor has opened an investigation for manslaughter, delegated to the local police of the Parioli group. The man who was driving the vehicle was subjected to analyzes to check whether at the moment of impact he was under the influence of alcohol and drugs. This circumstance which, if ascertained, would entail the accusation against the more serious one of road homicide.
Investigators have acquired images of two video surveillance cameras in the area from where, despite the point of impact being very much in the shade, the car can be seen moving towards Porta Pia while it hits the student.
The students of the Giulio Cesare high school recalled Elena on the school website: «With immense pain and dismay we communicate the premature death of our dearest student Elena Baruti. The entire school community of the Liceo Giulio Cesare huddles with great affection around the parents and sister Giulia, our former student ». The eighteen-year-old is yet another broken life on Via Nomentana, an artery that has the sad record of deaths in road accidents, especially among the youngest.
