Yet another accident on the roads of Salento. Two cars collided with each other today, in the early morning, on the provincial road 3 that goes from Carpignano to Borgagne. It was around nine in the morning, in fact, when the two cars came into contact. A small Renault car with two elderly people on board who were traveling towards Martano and a Fiat 500 with a boy on board who came from Carpignano Salentino. The two cars, therefore, for reasons still to be demonstrated and clarified, collided at the intersection.
From a first reconstruction of the facts, it seems that at the basis of the accident there was the failure to respect a priority at the intersection, but it will be up to the carabinieri, who have intervened in the meantime on the spot, to clarify everything after a careful investigation. The same stretch of road that was the scene of the accident this morning has already experienced similar episodes in the past. The 118 health workers who accompanied the boy, driver of the 500, to the hospital in Scorrano were also on site. Fortunately, his condition is not serious.
