ROSTOV-ON-DON, September 26 (Itar-Tass) — The condition of the children hurt in a large road accident in the Rostov region remains serious, a representative of the regional ministry of public health told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. There are 12 persons in hospitals at present; three children are in the IT ward of the Rostov children's hospital, four persons, including one adult, are in the central hospital of Azov, and five persons /including one adult/ are in the Bataisk hospital.
"The road accident victims are receiving necessary assistance; a majority of them have sustained cranial injures; one girl has a backbone injury," the representative said adding that the patients at the Azov and Bataisk hospitals receive the assistance of leading Rostov neurosurgeons.
On September 24, a Mercedes mini-bus en route from Moscow to Azov collided with a KamAZ truck on the Rostov-on-Don – Bataisk highway at around 23:00, Moscow time. The truck driver did not yield as he was turning, police said. Eighteen passengers were hurt in the collision, including 13 children. A six-year-old girl died.
The Interior Ministry's investigators opened criminal proceedings against the KamAZ driver over “violation of traffic rules which result in a fatality". The KamAZ driver will remain in custody until the circumstances of the road accident have been clarified.
