Four deaths in four days, the weekend in Rome was marked by a terrible trail of blood. The very young Elena, hit by a car on Thursday and died yesterday, and three scooter riders lost their lives. And so Rome is once again the Capital of road accidents: more than one death every two days. The 2020 data are distorted by Covid which eliminated traffic, but according to Istat data of 2019 in Rome 193 people died on the roads, 295 throughout Lazio, with over 15400 accidents of the almost 19 thousand in the entire region. A very sad record.
Elena Baruti was only 18 years old, she was hit on Thursday on Via Nomentana at the intersection with Via di Sant’Agnese: rescue, hospitalization at Umberto and the collection of blood among her schoolmates, the Giulio high school, were not enough Caesar. The San Camillo hospital is also in mourning for the death of the head of Neurosurgery, Agazio Menniti, aged 46, for an accident on the Gra, after the shift in the hospital, aboard his motorcycle. The man fell off his motorbike after a rear-end collision and was hit by another car. 52-year-old Adriano Bellucci was also aboard a scooter, who on Friday lost his life following a terrible crash with a tanker in viale Jonio, in Montesacro. The man was rushed to the Policlinico Umberto I where he later died. The 37-year-old Alessandro Pomante, born in Rome and living in Anguillara, was walking along via di Settevene Palo, near Trevignano: he went astray.
Not only two and four wheels, the safety alert is also being raised for scooters that move without rules: two 15-year-old boys were in fact injured in an accident with two cars in via di Donna Olimpia, in Monteverde, and transferred in red and orange code at San Camillo.
