A couple of twenty-year-olds from Biancavilla, for reasons still under investigation, this morning, from the highway would have made a fall of about 6 meters ending their run on the road below a bridge, in the countryside of Nunziata di Mascali.

According to what has been learned, the driver aboard a Citrôen, traveling on the A18 highway, at the height of the Mascali enclave of Tagliaborsa, would have lost control and crashed through the guardrail ending up on a country road.

The driver was rescued and then transferred by helicopter to Cannizzaro in Catania, where he arrived in critical condition.
