Tenor Salvatore Licitra in Critical Condition After Crash [Updated]

Salvatore Licitra Tenor Salvatore Licitra is hospitalized in critical condition with head and chest injuries at an Italian hospital after a Vespa accident on Saturday night near Modica, in the province of Ragusa, while he was en route to receive the Premio Ragusani nel Mondo on Sept. 3.

According to Italian news reports, Licitra was going about 30 mph and riding without a helmet at the time of the crash, sustaining  severe injuries to his head and chest. Italian news reports are vague, but apparently Licitra lost control of his scooter. No other vehicles were involved.  He was taken to a hospital in Modica  and transferred by helicopter to Garibaldi Hospital in Catania.

Doctors are trying to reduce swelling. Licitra’s condition is “complex,” according to the Google translation.

[Update: Licitra’s unidentified girlfriend, a passenger on the  scooter,  apparently sustained little if any injuries in the crash. Italian news reports said she was waiting at the hospital for word on Licitra’s condition.]

Licitra’s official website has some information.
