Driver who knocked down traffic police officer on Novy Arbat to death taken away by FSB
The car-killer is on special services’ record.
Some details of the sensational accident on Novy Arbat, where the traffic police officer was knocked down and killed, became known. It turned out that the car with the state number A848RM97 had taken away the driver, who hit the policeman soon after the accident. Both cars belong to the military unit connected with the FSB. This was reported to RBC by a source in the Moscow Interior Ministry. This information was also confirmed in the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate.
Recall that the resonant traffic accident occurred on September 25 at 10 pm, when the Mercedes S-class with the governmental numbers AMR A896MP97 knocked down a policeman to death at the intersection of Novy Arbat and Sadovoe Ring. The night road was free and the culprit of the accident was riding at a speed of more than 100 kph. As a consequence, the inspector of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate had minimal chances to survive a collision. After the incident, the car stopped, and after a while the licence plates were twisted. A lot of police cars drove up to the place of the accident, and the area was cordoned off, thereby impeding the work of journalists. According to unconfirmed reports, a rotation beacon was installed on the car.
