Moscow: Car accident involving traffic police, three policemen injured
In the morning of June 18, a major accident involving police officers took place in the center of Moscow.
The patrol car was chasing Mercedes from the Molodezhnaya Hotel on Dmitrovskoye Highway, since the 19-year-old driver had not stopped at the first request of the traffic police.
Getting away from the chase, 19-year-old the offender lost control, swerved into the oncoming traffic, and rammed traffic police's Renault Logan, which was also on the roadway at that moment. After the collision with the patrol car, Mercedes was knocked onto the lamp post.
According to preliminary data, it was a head-on collision; eight people were injured as a result of the accident.
Six victims with injuries were taken to a hospital. Three of them were police officers. The rest of the victims did not need hospitalization.
Currently, law enforcement officers are working at the scene; an aggregate picture of the accident is being established, and a pre-investigation check is being carried out.
The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, considered the refusal of Rosneft to build a bitumen plant in Chechnya "strange". Previously, the oil company proposed to build a bitumen plant instead of building an oil refinery in Grozny.
Since November 2016, political experts and media demonstrate keen interest to the Kemerovo region and its leader. High-profile terminations and arrests of regional officials and law enforcement officers, the illness of the Governor, and his disappearance from the public sight have sparked numerous rumors and speculations. According to the most recent prognosis, Tuleev has to testify as a witness in the ‘Inskoy Pit case’ and potentially faces jail.
