YEKATERINBURG, August 31 (Itar-Tass) — A criminal case was opened over the car crash near Nizhny Tagil on Tuesday, in which five people died. Criminal proceedings were opened over "violation of traffic rules that resulted in the death of two or more people," the press service of the regional prosecutor's office told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
"A check was launched at the Nizhny Tagil motor transport company # 6 which owns the LIAZ bus that met with an accident yesterday," the press service said.
Psychological assistance will be rendered to the relatives of the fatalities and the injured people, an official at the regional department of the Emergency Situations Ministry said.
In the evening of August 30, a regular bus and an articulated truck collided on the Yekaterinburg-Serov highway, six kilometers from Nizhny Tagil. Five people died in the crash and another three were injured.
According to preliminary reports, the bus driver took the vehicle into an incoming lane as he tried to avoid ramming an elk.
It was a second large car crash in the region in the past week. On August 28, seven people died in the Perm-Yekateriburg highway crash involving a bus, a truck and several cars. Another eight people were injured. The culprit behind the accident was in a state of alcoholic intoxication. He is in detention. A criminal case was opened against him.
