A 79 year old pensioner, Francesco Lucente, he died this evening in Catanzaro hospital following injuries sustained after being hit in the town of Crotone. This morning, Lucente was crossing the road at the pedestrian crossing when he was hit by a car driven by a 39-year-old man from Crotone who immediately stopped to help. The victim was taken to Crotone hospital and admitted to intensive care. However, his condition worsened and for this reason, considering the severity of the injuries, he was transferred by air ambulance to Pugliese-Ciaccio in Catanzaro where, however, he died in the evening. Lucente, retired, was known in the city because for years he worked as a technical analyst at an analysis laboratory in Crotone. Local police officers intervened on site to investigate.
