Adam Platania, What Happened to Him?
At the well-known crossroads of North Main and Nesmith streets, tragedy struck as police reacted to a tragic accident. Before the crash on North Main Street, two motorbikes were seen travelling in a group, according to witnesses. The implicated automobile was turning from Pinkerton Street into North Main Street when the incident happened.
Sadly, Adam Platania, age 21, of Derry, went away at the scene, and Katina Skotis, age 20, of Litchfield, died at Elliot Hospital, leaving behind bereaved family members. The second motorcycle’s rider and passenger got sent to the hospital for non-life-threatening medical attention. Following the event, roads in the region were blocked for some hours as the city mourned the loss of those lives lost too soon.
