Yesterday in Villamarzana (RO), at 18.30, a patrol of the Station of Arquà Polesine (RO) intervened along the 434 SS for the presence of a tanker that, for a breakdown, was spilling liquid on the roadway. In the course of the reliefs a heavy vehicle that arrived mortally invested the pinned crew leader chosen by Antonino Modica, 55enne, while the carabiniere driver remained unharmed.

The general commander Giovanni Nistri and the whole Arma dei Carabinieri tighten together around his wife Elisa and his sons Luca and Elena, expressing their closeness and their condolences for the tragic death of the relative.

Antonino Modica is dead as he lived, in duty and duty. His sacrifice will remain alive in the memory of all the Carabinieri.
