Ural Region: police officer hits 2 pedestrians while driving to work
A traffic officer hit two 50 y. o. pedestrians while driving to work in the Sverdlovsk Region.
The accident took place on Plekhanova Street in Asbest, according to the regional police. The traffic officer drove his personal Chevrolet Cruze to work when he hit 2 pedestrians on a poorly lit road section. The victims were taken to hospital. Both were drunk at the time of the accident, as later turned out.
An inspection was initiated. A proceeding decision will be taken once it is complete.
“The officer was on duty, wearing his uniform. He underwent a medical examination; no alcohol was found in his blood,” the Office of Public Affairs of the agency pointed out.
Both victims were 40 meters away from a crosswalk when the accident happened, according to preliminary information. A vehicular-technical inspection was initiated in order to learn about circumstances of the accident. It will help reconstruct what happened.
Yet another scandal involving Boris Dubrovsky is looming in the Chelyabinsk region. The Governor is determined to resettle Uraim and Severny Klyuch villages against the will of their residents. Kolyma Governor Sergei Nosov suggested Dubrovsky to drive the people into bright future with iron hands. In fact, the future is bright mostly for Nosov and Dubrovsky – not for the resettled villagers.
