Two police officers knock down and kill pedestrian, after which flee from scene
The victim was walking in the middle of the roadway and could be drunk.
In Voronezh, the police found a car that knocked down and killed a pedestrian on the Street of the 206th Infantry Division and fled from an accident scene two days ago. The driver turned out to be a 22-year-old policeman, and the passenger was his 26-year-old colleague, the regional Interior Ministry said. The driver pleaded guilty.
According to the 22-year-old policeman, he hit the pedestrian because of poor visibility – there was heavy fog, and the 33-year-old man walked barefoot in the middle of the road and was probably drunk.
The leadership of the regional police launched an internal probe. The ICR Directorate conducts one of its own. If the guilt of the officers is confirmed, they will be dismissed for negative reasons and prosecuted.
