Fatal collision in Tàrrega
Last September 29, a 92-year-old man was hit in Tàrrega. The Mossos d'Esquadra and the Local Police of Tàrrega were investigating a fatal hit-and-run to a 92-year-old man, in an urban section of the capital of theUrgell.
Specifically, the events happened on the C-14, at the height of the Patio, when the man crossed a place where there were no pedestrians. A truck hit him and apparently he didn't stop. The police started an investigation in order to clarify the facts of the serious collision.
On the one hand, there is the possibility that the truck driver did not stop because he did not see the pedestrian. But, on the other hand, he may have run away when he saw what had happened. Unfortunately, the grandfather died after a few hours at the Hospital Arnau de Vilanova in the city of Lleida because of the injuries he suffered.
