A serious road accident occurred shortly after 4:00 pm on 4 April on the Terni-Orte junction near the Capitone junction. The driver of a tanker lost his life, following an impact with another heavy vehicle. The fire brigade, traffic police and carabinieri were on the spot. Long queues formed over the entire stretch of road heading south.
The victim was Enzo Galanti, a fifty-year-old man from Abruzzo. The heavy vehicles collided head-on and the driver of the tanker had nowhere to go. The accident occurred in the uphill section that precedes the entrance to the tunnel between the junction for Narni Scalo-Capitone and that for Amelia.
The two vehicles were seized pending a police investigation.
