The victim was sent to a hospital with multiple bruises of the face and body, concussion, broken nose, and a closed fracture of the right femur.
Glazey noted that the Serpukhov police executives is currently trying to conceal the crime. They appeal to the fact that the victim did not use a pedestrian crossing, and they also claim that it was not the inspector herself, who was driving, but her mother, who had no driving license at that moment.
However, the press service of the MIA Main Department in the Moscow Region stated that Sharova had been fired and the case materials had been sent to the investigative authorities.
