The road accident occurred near a well-known bar in via Vittorio Emanuele III. The pedestrian is an elderly person hospitalized in Cannizzaro in serious conditions

Belpasso (Catania) – The Carabinieri of the Belpasso station, with colleagues from the Radiomobile Nucleus of the Compagnia di Paternò, arrested a 36-year-old from Catania for very serious personal injuries and driver escape in the event of personal road injuries.

Yesterday morning the center of Belpasso was shaken by a serious road accident caused by a truck, out of control by the driver, which hit a pedestrian after traveling about 100 meters on the pavement, then going to stop its mad rush right at the entrance of a well-known bar in via Vittorio Emanuele III. The driver of the heavy vehicle, however, had immediately moved away from the accident site while the overwhelmed person, a 70-year-old from Paternò, was immediately rescued and transported to the emergency room of the Cannizzaro hospital in Catania where the doctors found him ” polytrauma with head and upper and lower limbs trauma ”, hospitalizing him with a reserved prognosis and in danger of life.

Meanwhile, the driver, untraceable but identified through the documents found on the truck, which among other things is uninsured and uninsured, he had contacted his employer who, realizing the gravity of the situation, accompanied him to the Carabinieri barracks in Belpasso. The employee told the military that the vehicle had not previously shown any signs of failure until suddenly the brakes no longer responded to commands. Panicked, the man would have tried to warn those present with the horn and, after colliding with some cars and engaged the sidewalk, he had stopped his race right at the entrance to the bar. The driver would have recommended to those present to help the injured person, but he also reported that he left because he was in pain and afraid of what had happened. The military, having completed the preliminary investigations, placed the man under house arrest pending the decisions of the Judicial Authority.
