Police names preliminary cause of car accident in Bashkiria
19 people were injured in the car accident, including three children.
The bus driver in Bashkir Sterlitamak chose an unsafe traffic speed under extreme driving conditions, the MIA in the Republic of Bashkortostan reported.
During the accident, there was packed snow, drifts, and sleet on the road.
“The driver lost control of the vehicle on a roundabout, as a result of which he drove into a power pole. There might have been a discrepancy between the vehicle’s speed and road conditions.
Medical examination showed that the driver was sober,” the MIA press service told TASS.
The bus drove into a power pole. 19 people were injured in the car accident, including three children. Two injured people are in serious condition. The route was performed by a state carrier; the driver has 25 years of experience.
Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
