MOSCOW, September 21 (Itar-Tass) — The circumstances of the road accident in the town of Domodedovo, Moscow region, in which a foreign-made car fatally ran over four citizens of Moldova, will be available after an expert examination.
"A expert/forensic examination has been ordered within the framework of the criminal case. Its results are due within a month," the press service of the regional department of the Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
On September 19, a Mercedes-Benz driving towards Moscow, ran down three men who were crossing the road outside of the pedestrian crossing zone at the 30th kilometer of the Moscow-Domodedovo airport highway. A Toyota Land Cruiser in the next lane ran over the fourth pedestrian. "Three pedestrians were killed on the spot, and the fourth was rushed to hospital in critical condition where he later died," police said.
Criminal proceedings were opened under Article 264, Part 5 of Russia's Criminal Code ("violation of traffic rules and operation of vehicles which resulted in negligent death of two or more persons.")
All the victims are natives of Moldova's Telenesti district.
Meanwhile, the Blue Bucket society which combats abuses of flashers and sirents by officials said on its Internet blog that both cars involved in the accident - Mercedes (license plate M552MP77) and Toyota (license plate K424MP77) belonged to officials. After the road accident the flasher was removed from the Mercedes, and its license plates were covered. Blue Bucket activists said the cars were moving at some 140 kilometers per hour. Car drivers cited other violations these cars had committed.
According to some media reports, both vehicles were registered to company Avangard-Leasing which is connected to the Avangard bank. Police claimed the foreign cars had not been moving as a motorcade.
