ULAN-UDE, October 27 (Itar-Tass) — The Chernyshevsky district court in the Zaibaikalye Territory sentenced former senior aide to district prosecutor Maxim Skubyev to six years in a penal colony for drunk driving and causing a road accident in which three persons had been killed.
"The defendant was sentenced to six years in a penal colony and taken in custody in the courtroom," the press service of the prosecutor's office of the Zabaikalye Territory told Itar-Tass.
The road accident in which three adolescents died and another two were injured, occurred at around 05:00, on July 17, 2010. The former senior aide to the Chernyshevsky district prosecutor, in a state of alcoholic intoxication and without driver's license, was driving a Subaru Forester along the Amur federal highway.
At the 304th kilometer, he lost control of the vehicle and ran into five 17-year-old youngsters. They were standing near three "Honda" and "Kawasaki" motorcycles in the traffic area. Two of them died on the spot, and the third died in the ambulance on the way to hospital. Two youngsters were hospitalized in serious condition.
"According to the expert examinations, Skubyev had an opportunity to see danger and avoid the collision, because the motorcyclists had lights on. Despite the fact, that the injured parties had violated traffic regulations, too, it is not in causal relationship to the consequences of the road accident," prosecutors said.
Skubyev's guilt was exacerbated by his escaping from the scene without taking measures to provide medical assistance to the victims.
