Nurse dies in car crash after two straight night shifts

Must have fallen asleep at wheel say family

(ANSA) - ROME, FEB 15 - A 27-year-old Italian nurse died in a car crash near Brindisi Monday night after pulling two straight night shifts in a hospital in the Puglia city, sources said Tuesday.
    Sara Viva Sorge was driving home when she swerved off the road for reasons still to be established in the countryside between San Vito dei Normanni and San Michele Salentino, and smashed into a lamp post.
    Her family said she probably fell asleep at the wheel after her "crushing" recent work load. (ANSA).
