1. Hartmann (Voiturette) cut the corner in front of Farina (GP), and the
   cars collided and overturned. Farina was largely uninjured, but Hartmann
   broke his back and died the next day.

2. Siena (GP) came around a blind high speed corner, and had to brake hard to
   brake hard to avoid Cortese (Voiturette), losing control. Siena went over
   a sand bank and into a house, dieing instantly.

* Marazza was blinded by the smoke from Sommer's now burning Alfa Romeo
and failed to see the chequered flag. Marazza continued at race speed,
and unfortunately overturned in the Lesmo curves, ending up in the woods.
The driver pierced a lung on a tree branch, and died later that day
in hospital.
