He was chatting with his smartphone. She was doing it to arrange a red light meeting. Concentrated on the device and on the sexual cravings while driving a public transport, a bus, indifferent to the responsibility assumed by starting it and the role it covered, regardless of the danger it caused unwitting users and citizens to run.
The Monza Public Prosecutor’s Office asked for the indictment of a 47-year-old ATM driver, who on 11 December 2020 hit and killed 53-year-old Cristina Conforti in Cinisello Balsamo, in the Milan area.
When he overwhelmed her, as established by an appraisal arranged on his mobile phone by the prosecutor of Monza Michela Versini, he was busy doing much more than driving with the utmost attention.
The man will have to answer for street murder.
The preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week.
According to what was reconstructed by the investigations and confirmed, in fact, by the expert opinion, the driver was chatting via social media for about half an hour with a person, agreeing on sexual services, when he overwhelmed the fifty-three year old.
The driver, according to the request for indictment, “did not pay adequate attention to the guide, being engaged in conversations written via Facebook so much that he hit the concrete curb with the tire on the sidewalk, not noticing the presence of the pedestrian, thus hitting her with the glass of the windshield and projecting it at the base of the bus, to then hit it and drag it to the end of the ride, causing its death “.
“We didn’t even know with what words to explain to Cristina’s family the use this person was making of their mobile phone – said Fernando Rosa, manager of Giesse Compensation Damage in Monza, who assists the family – It is unheard of to die in such circumstances; initially it seemed just a trivial distraction, instead something emerged that we never expected “.
