A tragic collision in Rome unfolded when a rented Lamborghini Urus, allegedly partaking in the filming of a YouTube challenge, collided head-on with a Smart ForFour, resulting in the death of a five-year-old boy and injuries to his mother and sister. Reports suggest that Matteo Di Pietro, an Italian social media influencer, was driving the Urus and engaged in a stunt at the time of the devastating accident. Authorities are currently investigating the incident.

As per the authorities, Di Pietro was among a group of five young men who were present in the blue Urus during the collision. The group had embarked on a social media challenge that involved spending 50 continuous hours inside the Lamborghini SUV, with potential prizes for successful completion. However, the devastating accident has caused a shift in focus, and all five individuals are now under investigation by the police.

According to reports, Di Pietro allegedly engaged in reckless behavior, including speeding and attempting to overtake other vehicles, while taunting other drivers on the road. Tragically, his actions resulted in a head-on collision with a car carrying a 5-year-old boy, his 4-year-old sister, and their 35-year-old mother. Regrettably, the young boy lost his life at the scene, while his sister and mother were immediately transported to the hospital for treatment of their injuries. The current condition of the injured individuals remains unknown at this time.


Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini, expressed his condolences regarding the tragic incident, stating, “It is deeply saddening that a five-year-old boy lost his life in a terrible accident just outside Rome, apparently involving a social media challenge with five YouTubers in a Lamborghini.”

Salvini further emphasized the need for strict consequences, stating, “If you are a repeat offender and cause the loss of someone’s life due to reckless driving, you should be permanently stripped of your driver’s license. It is not a matter of a temporary suspension for a few months.”

In a heartfelt message shared on his Instagram page, Vito Loiacono, one of the occupants of the Lamborghini, expressed the indescribable trauma he is going through. He clarified that he was not the one driving the vehicle and expressed his condolences to the victim’s family, stating that he stands by them during this difficult time.

As per Italy24, investigators are actively examining the mobile phones of the individuals involved in the Lamborghini to gather further evidence. They are also working to establish the speed at which the powerful SUV was traveling at the time of this tragic collision in Rome.
