Class action? Who else was injured??
Yes, I read that too.
The 44-year-old driver, whose truck Zanardi collided with, reported that he lost control of his handbike and
overturned twice before the collision. He could not have prevented the collision.
Zanardi is at risk of losing both eyes, said Sabino Scolletta, head of the intensive care unit.
Cardiovascular functions are satisfactory.
If I recall correctly, I read that he was able to talk when help approached at the scene, so I assume the coma is induced to keep him stabilized?
Things is, brain injuries develop over the hours and days afterwards as swelling and possibly bleeding occur.Hkbruin2 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 24, 2020 2:26 amIf I recall correctly, I read that he was able to talk when help approached at the scene, so I assume the coma is induced to keep him stabilized?

They're very scary from a public perspective too!
https://www.motorsport.com/general/news ... -/4814128/In a new bulletin issued on Monday by Siena University Hospital, it was confirmed that Zanardi had undergone a second surgery after a CT scan presented “an evolution in the patient’s state which made is necessary to have a second neurosurgical intervention”.
The surgery lasted two-and-a-half hours, after which Zanardi returned to the hospital’s intensive care unit where he remains in a coma.
The hospital reported that Zanardi’s condition “remained stable from the cardio-respiratory and metabolic point of view, serious from the neurological point of view”
“The intervention carried out represents a step that had been anticipated by the team,” according to the university’s health director, Roberto Gusinu. “Our professionals will evaluate day by day the evolution of the situation.
“In agreement with the family, the next bulletin will be issued in about 24 hours.”
