Serious accident in Graubünden, a 9-month-old girl dies.

April 12 , 2018

A tragic epilogue for the serious road accident on Wednesday afternoon on the A2 at the Lostallo motorway exit, in the canton of Grisons, shortly after 15.30.

All eight people belonging to a single family unit residing in the Canton of St. Gallen were injured. Nothing to do unfortunately for a girl of only 9 months who died last night at the Civic Hospital of Lugano, due to the serious injuries reported, shortly after her admission after being transported by helicopter urgently by REGA.

The other occupants are currently hospitalized in the Bellinzona hospital. According to the RSI - news to be confirmed - it would be a family of Eritrean origin.

The van (minibus) on which the driver traveled with his wife along with their three children, in addition to the sister of the driver with his two children, began to suddenly slip out of the roadway on the right going to break the protection and then overturn in the adjacent lawn a few times before stopping on the roof.

On the spot the firefighters from the Lower Mesolcina, the rescuers of the SAM (GR), the Green Cross of Bellinzona and the SALVA intervened, in addition to a helicopter from the REGA.

Not far from the accident site in San Vittore, a week ago another accident involved a motorist traveling on the highway. This time due to the presence of deer that crossed it.

The causes of yesterday's accident are yet to be ascertained and the Graubünden police who have started an investigation are looking for witnesses to clarify what happened.

Here the van has overturned several times finishing the race near some plants that have slowed down. Unknown for hours the causes of the accident. On the spot the firefighters from the Lower Mesolcina, the rescuers of the Moesano ambulance service, the Green Cross of Bellinzona and the Salva di Locarno, as well as a helicopter from the Rega took part.
