Fabio Licitra spoke emotionally about his brother’s near-fatal accident at an awards ceremony in Ragusa. Salvatore is still in a coma in hospital at Catania after coming off his Vespa without wearing head protection. No change has been reported in his condition over recent days.
Fabio said that his brother, more prudent than himself, always wore a helmet. He removed it while looking for a different parking spot outside a restaurant. The tragedy happened over a ride of 200 metres. His girlfriend, riding pillion, was unharmed.
