As the CrimeRussia wrote previously, on December 12, 2016 Shary was driving a Mercedes Gelandewagen when he ran over two 8-year-old girls at a pedestrian crossing on Mosfilmovskaya Street. At that moment the children and their mother were just crossing the road walking on the pedestrian zone while the traffic signal allowing this was on. The girls suffered serious injuries in the incident, and the driver fled the scene. Subsequently, Alexander Shary turned himself in, apologized and said he was ashamed of what he did.
