Massimo Carrera under investigation for manslaughter

Juventus caretaker manager Massimo Carrera could face manslaughter charges over his involvement in a fatal car crash last year.

Juventus caretaker manager Massimo Carrera is under investigation over his involvement in a fatal car accident in 2011.

The interim boss could face manslaughter charges for his part in the collision, which claimed the lives of two young women.

Chiara Varani and Patrizia Paninforni, both 23, were killed in the aftermath of a three-car pile-up in the early hours of New Year's Eve last year.

While all three drivers exited their vehicles to assess the damage, a Mercedes R-Class driven by Carrera hit a Ford Ka, claiming the life of one of the women instantly. The other passed away in hospital as a result of her injuries.

Carrera's legal representatives claim that the road was poorly lit, making it difficult for him to see the stationary vehicles ahead of him.

The prosecution argue that he should still have spotted the cars and had adequate time to avoid the pile-up, according to

Carrera has requested an expedited hearing and a verdict is expected by October 9.
