OMSK, April 17 (Itar-Tass) — Deputy prime minister of the Omsk region, Minister of Agriculture and Food Vladimir Rarov died of car crash-related injured in hospital on Tuesday morning.
The head-on collision between his service car and a Zhiguli occurred at the 51st kilometre of the Omsk-Tara highway on Saturday. The Zhiguli driver was drunk, an official at the regional agriculture ministry told Itar-Tass.
