A 44 year old man And died hit by a train to Montecatini Termemore precisely at the level crossing in via Tripoli, a few meters away from the local Carabinieri barracks.
What happened in Montecatini
As reported by ‘La Nazione’, in all likelihood it would be a suicide: some witnesses would, in fact, have seen the man lying down on the tracks before the arrival of the train, which then ran over him.
In any case, Polfer is investigating the case, in order to reconstruct exactly what happened at the level crossing of via Tripoli in Montecatini Terme on the morning of Thursday 30 March.
The 44-year-old man was run over at the level crossing in via Tripoli in Montecatini Terme around 8.30 on Thursday 30 March. On March 22, another 76-year-old man died after being run over by a train in via Marruota.
Interrupted trains and haywire road traffic
The alarm went off around 8.30 on Thursday 30 March. Train traffic was immediately interrupted on the Florence-Viareggio line between Montecatini and Borgo a Buggiano, with serious inconvenience to travellers. The replacement bus service between Pescia and Montecatini has been activated. Following what happened at the level crossing of via Tripoli in Montecatini Terme, it appears road traffic is also haywire.
