A cyclist would have fallen to avoid the car that had stopped too far at the intersection
The driver was tracked down after ten days he left after causing a cyclist to fall at the intersection of via della Pietra and via Bolognese in Florence.
In addition to the cyclist, a 27-year-old foreigner attending the European University Institute, a car was involved. According to the dynamics reconstructed by the Municipal Police, and reported in a note by the municipality of Florence, the driver of the car arriving from via della Pietra arrived at the intersection with via Bolognese to turn, having stopped the car ahead of the horizontal signs, ending to clutter up part of the road.
The 27 year old on the bike in an attempt to brake he would have fallen to the ground even though there was no collision between the two vehicles. The driver would then get out of the car to talk to the cyclist and then leave without leaving the data to ask for damages. At this point the investigation of the Municipal Police began which thanks to camera images, all the testimonies and a photo taken by the injured cyclist managed to trace the owner of the car.
The man, resident in the province of Grosseto, stated that the car is being used by his 43-year-old son domiciled in Florence. Today the driver was identified and, reached at his home, confirmed his responsibility. For him they took the complaint for failure to help (although stopping and speaking with the injured person did not provide him with useful information for compensatory purposes) and the penalty for lack of precedence.
