Driver who knocked down 'drunk' boy willing to take polygraph test
According to the driver’s lawyers, the boy "jumped under the wheels from behind a parked car", so it was impossible to notice and break in time.
Olga Alisova, who knocked down and killed a 6-year-old boy in the Zheleznodorozhny District near Balashikha (Moscow Region), is willing to take a lie detector test to prove that she was not able to notice the child and brake in time, said her lawyer Natalia Kurakina, according to Meduza. The defense insists that the boy "jumped under the wheels from behind a parked car."
The accident occurred in the courtyard of an apartment building on April 23. Alisova driving a Hyundai Solaris knocked down a child and dragged him along for another 10 meters. The boy died of the wounds. According to eyewitnesses, the car was moving at a speed of about 50-60 kph, and the woman was talking on the phone. Alisova claims that the child himself is to blame for being knocked down, as he rushed under the car. Six-year-old Alyosha Shimko was returning from a walk with his grandfather, but did not notice the car. At that moment the pensioner was carrying the child's bicycle and did not have time to react.
Then the parents tried to initiate a criminal case for more than a month. The story captured the headlines after the results of the medical examination were published, according to which 2.7 ppm of alcohol was found in the deceased child’s blood. This concentration of ethyl alcohol corresponds to a strong degree of intoxication. The main investigative department of the Russian Investigative Committee for the Moscow Region initiated a case under Negligence (Art. 293 of the Criminal Code) against experts who prepared the report. The investigators will also check the actions of the police officers, both at the accident scene and during the investigation of the criminal case instituted on this fact.
In addition, after the accident, the external surveillance camera placed at the entrance of the house turned out missing. The father of the deceased boy said that the case was delayed due to Alisova's contacts with an organized crime group. The witnesses of the road accident claim that they have been threatened and pressurized. Olga Alisova, according to some sources, is the wife of one of the Moscow gangs, responsible for kidnappings, murders, robberies, extortions and rapes. Alisova also complained to the Prosecutor's Office about threats after the accident.
