Another tragedy on the roads of Salento. A car overturns along the highway, the driver manages to free himself, but is hit by another moving car and thrown into a tree. For him, unfortunately, nothing to do. The episode took place in the night, around 4, along the state road 16 that leads from Maglie to Lecce, exactly near the exit for Zollino. To lose his life Christian Stomeo, 29 years old born in Scorrano, but resident in Martano. In the car that overturned, an Opel Corsa, there was also a girl who ended up in hospital with some minor injuries.
From a first reconstruction of the tragedy it seems that the car, for reasons still to be accepted, overturned near a narrowing due to work in progress that two other vehicles dodged the car that remained in the middle of the road, before a third car hit the Opel overturned, throwing the 29-year-old against the tree. The 118 health workers intervened on the spot who could not help but ascertain the death of the 29-year-old and transport the girl to the hospital, but also the firefighters and local police officers who will have to reconstruct the exact dynamics of the tragedy.
