Tragic accident in Erba, a town in the province of Como. Earlier today, Saturday 22 January, a man died after his car was hit by a train near a level crossing. Firefighters and 118 health workers intervened on the spot, but there was nothing for the man to do: his death was immediately declared. Another person was injured.

A 57-year-old man died

The accident occurred in via Trieste, between the Merone and Erba stations. On the portal of the regional emergency emergency agency of Lombardy (Areu) it is reported that the rescue intervened at 8.53: doctors and paramedics were sent on board two ambulances and a helicopter. Despite the rescue intervention, for the driver of the car – a 57-year-old man – there was nothing to do: he was declared dead. Another man, a 24-year-old boy, was injured. However, they would appear not so badly that he would not have been transferred to the hospital.

We try to reconstruct the dynamics of the accident

The firefighters and carabinieri also intervened on the spot. The first took steps to remove the car, to help in the rescue and safety operations. The latter have carried out all the relevant findings and are reconstructing the dynamics of the accident. The causes are still unclear. To allow all operations, Trenord – the company that deals with the railway service – has made it known that a replacement bus had been set up from Merone. Once all the operations have been completed, circulation is resumed on a regular basis.
