After the many incidents that have occurred in recent days, still fear in Salento for an accident that could have ended in tragedy, but luckily it was much more spectacular and frightening than it proved dangerous. The accident occurred this morning, just before noon, on the state road 101 that leads from Lecce leads to Gallipoli, in the direction of the latter. A tanker, in fact, for reasons still to be verified and demonstrated, skidded and overturned on its side, blocking the entire carriageway in that part of the road. What was alarming above all was the fact that the heavy vehicle was full of petrol and therefore could cause a tragedy.
Fear in Salento. The driver of the heavy vehicle was injured
On site the fire brigade intervened who tried to secure the craft, but their operations turned out to be somewhat difficult and more complicated than expected, as the craft carried fuel for aeronautical shift engines. On the spot of the accident, which caused so much fear in Salento, the 118 health workers also intervened who led the driver of the heavy vehicle, with a yellow code, injured even if fortunately slightly, at the Vito Fazzi Hospital in Lecce for some investigations. The police also intervened on the spot who, together with the firefighters, regulated the traffic that literally went haywire for a few hours.
