MOSCOW, November 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Officials from the Russian interior ministry are to arrive in the city of Kursk in central European Russia to investigate into a traffic accident that killed and injured top-ranking officials from the regional administration, a police source told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The accident took place late on Saturday in the Fatezhsky district of the Kursk region on the 494th kilometer of the Crimea highway. The Toyota car, driven by a junior criminal police officer, rammed a KAMAZ truck going in the same direction. As a result, the police officer and two of his passengers – a deputy department head of the Kursk regional administration and a Ukrainian citizen – died instantly, while a deputy governor and a deputy head of the regional police department were hospitalized, the source said.
