Seven cyclists have been killed while riding in Lamezia Terme, in Calabria. Two are also in grave condition in the hospital.
The group, which was out on a training ride, was struck head-on by a car that was attempting to pass another car. The driver was, according to early reports, driving with a suspended license.
My heart goes out to all their families.
I can't bring myself to post photographs that are appearing of the carnage but this one tells the story.
