A 59 year old has been referred in a state of freedom to the judicial authority for escape and failure to helpfrom the Accident Section of the municipal police of Messina. Late yesterday evening, the man, driving his small car, after having hit a pedestrian in Fondo Fucile, a 41-year-old GDL, fled without providing aid to the injured man.
An 118 ambulance, called by some passers-by, transported the pedestrian to the Polyclinic where he was hospitalized following the serious injuries he sustained. Starting from the few elements in their possession, the Accident Section staff first ascertained the model and color of the car, and then the first two letters of the license plate.
The control of the car’s possible escape directions made it possible to find the car this morning, a white Fiat Seicento. The car was seized. Shortly afterwards, the driver of the car turned himself in at the Accident Office.
