A 16-year-old girl died in the province of Siena after being accidentally hit by an underage friend at the wheel of a car without a driving license. The tragedy took place on the evening of Thursday 22 July 2021 and the 16-year-old died yesterday, Saturday 24 July, at the Le Scotte hospital in Siena.
The accident occurred in the private courtyard of some houses on the outskirts of Abbadia San Salvatore, in the Sienese area. According to the reconstruction that emerged, the girl who drove the car made a mistake in engaging the gear, engaging the first instead of the back, and ran over her friend, who crashed into a wall.
The 16-year-old – whose conditions immediately appeared very serious – was rushed to the hospital, where she underwent a delicate surgery. After a day in intensive care, the girl passed away.
As mentioned, the car was driven by a young woman not yet 18 and therefore without a driving license. It seems that the car is a gift from the grandfather in view of reaching the age of majority. The Carabinieri of Abbadia San Salvatore investigate the case.
