Luigi "Gigi" Meroni (24 February 1943 – 15 October 1967) was an Italian football player who played for Torino. He died at the age of 24 after being hit by two cars while crossing the main street "Corso Re Umberto" near "Via Legnano" in Turin, Italy. His friend and teammate Fabrizio Poletti was also hit but survived. They had been celebrating a 4–2 win over Sampdoria at a nearby restaurant. While trying to get to a telephone to call his fiance Cristiana Uderstadt, he was clipped by a passing car and thrown onto the road where he was hit again by another car. One of his teammates, Lido Vieri, who had left earlier and lived on the same street, heard the accident and ran to his side. Although still alive, he was badly injured and died later. The driver of the car which hit Meroni was a 19-year-old Torino F.C. supporter who idolised him. He had a photo of Meroni in his car. The young driver was Attilio Romero who later became the Torino F.C. President in 2000.
