A 20-year-old boy borrowed a car from a friend who deals with passenger transportation.

A driver detained in Moscow, who hit a group of migrant workers cleaning a sidewalk on Pokrovka Street, did not have a driver’s license. A car to the 20-year-old boy was provided by an acquaintance working in a taxi service. The car belongs to the taxi company VideKi LLC, reports Moskovsky Komsomolets. At the time of the accident, there were two passengers in the cabin.

According to eyewitnesses, the Kia driver drove into the oncoming lane, and then onto the pavement. The foreign car that lost control first hit a road sign, and then three workers from Central Asia aged 20 to 23.

Despite the cries of numerous passers-by, the driver continued driving and dragged one of the injured under the wheels for about 100 meters. Then he moved backward, having once again run over the worker, after which he drove around him and headed for Big Zlatoustinsky lane. It was there that the taxi was detained.

Two victims tried to catch up with the taxi driver and help the third, but soon one of them lost consciousness. The worker who was under the car died on the way to the hospital.

According to the press service of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Moscow, the police are currently conducting an investigation. Obviously, a criminal case will be opened against the driver.
