Six Maltese tourists in Sicily were involved in a head-on collision with a car on via Peppino Impastato between Pozzallo and Modica, resulting in injuries.
Three men and three women were hurt in the incident, with one woman sustaining a broken hip and others experiencing injuries such as a broken jaw, fractured elbow, and fractured shoulder.
The car they collided with, a Volkswagen T-Roc, had a driver and two passengers. The car’s front passenger suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to the Cannizzaro di Catania hospital.
Three of the injured Maltese individuals were taken to the Ragusa hospital, including a woman with an elbow fracture who requires air ambulance transport back to Malta, a man with a fractured shoulder, and another man in stable condition.
The remaining three were admitted to the Modica hospital, with one woman needing hip surgery, while one man has been discharged. Discussions are ongoing between Maltese and Italian health authorities to arrange for the injured woman’s return to Malta via air ambulance.
The Maltese Embassy in Rome and the consul in Catania are in constant contact with the affected tourists.
