Police officer guilty of hitting 2 people dead with her car proved drunk at medical check-up
Last Sunday, a married couple from Serpukhov, Vitaly Sharov and his wife Elena, died in a car accident that happened when an MIA investigator slipped into the oncoming lane.
The culprit is an employee of the inquiry office at the Serpukhovskoe MIA Investigative Department, Lieutenant Anastasia Bulgakova. The investigation is still ongoing.
The results of medical examination showed that 31-year-old perpetrator was drunk, with no less than 0.59 per mille of alcohol found in her blood, Life reported.
It is worth noting that this is the stage of intoxication, when the motor coordination and concentration are lost, a person experiences euphoria and relaxation, and acts in a devil-may-care attitude, experts say.
It is reported that the results of the analysis for drug intoxication will be ready in a few days.
In the evening of December 11, the intoxicated off-duty police investigator hit two pedestrians on her Hyundai Sonata on the 2nd Moscow street in Serpukhov.
The investigation established that Bulgakova drove into the oncoming lane at a speed of over 100 km/h, crossed it, and killed the pedestrians while trying to pull over. The impact was extremely strong — 47-year-old Elena Sharova and 46-year-old Vitaly Sharov died on the spot from injuries.

According to Art. 91 of the Russian Federation Code of Criminal Procedure, Anastasia Bulgakova has been detained for two days. The ICR Main Investigative Department in Serpukhov opened a criminal case under part 5 of Art. 264 of the Criminal Code (Violation by a person driving a motor vehicle of the traffic rules, which has entailed the death of two or more persons). The issue of a pre-trial measure is currently being reviewed. It is noted that Bulgakova has already partially admitted her guilt.
Bulgakova has already been dismissed on negative grounds after 9 years in the Ministry of Internal Affairs. In addition, the MIA punished her supervisors, warning them of the incomplete adequacy.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
