Swanky students knock down and kill motorcyclist on Moscow’s Kutuzovsky Prospekt
The culprits left the scene, but they did not go far. The same night, the car hit the marbles and crashed into a bus stop.
A young couple driving a Mercedes-ML off-roader knocked and killed a 23-year-old motorcyclist on Moscow’s Kutuzovsky Prospekt.
The deadly accident happened last night. CCTV cameras recorded a white SUV knocking down a motorcyclist when changing lanes at high speed. The media reported referring to eyewitnesses that a young girl was driving when the accident happened, and her boyfriend, 20-year-old MGIMO student Arkady Smelov, was in the passenger seat. After the incident, the couple stopped the car, but not to help the injured motorcyclist. The boy and the girl changed seats and Smelov drove away from the accident scene.
The 23-year-old motorcyclist was urgently taken to a medical institution in a coma by 01:10. Despite the fact that the biker was in full motorcycle equipment, he was diagnosed with a bruise of the heart and lung, rupture of the spleen and liver, closed fracture of the right hand, bruises of the right knee and hips. Unfortunately, the efforts of the doctors could not save the young man's life. At 03.37 the doctors attested his death. Later it turned out that the deceased was Arkady Dymov, the head of a student's bike club MADI MOTO.
As we have said, the perpetrators of the accident did not manage to go far. Just a few kilometers from the accident scene, the young man lost control of the car, hit the marbles and crashed into a bus stop. By that time, road traffic inspectors arrived. According to Mash public page, the examination showed that Arkady Smelov's blood contained 0.39 ppm of alcohol, which corresponds to a mild degree of intoxication.
