MOSCOW, October 4 (Itar-Tass) — Driver who ran down and killed seven people at a bus stop in western Moscow September 22 was zonked with alcohol and drugs, the press service of Moscow City’s Department of the Interior said Thursday quoting experts’ findings.
“The results of chemical and toxicological tests show that Alexander Maksimov’s blood contained 2.78 parts of alcohol per million and also cannabinoids,” the press service said.
According to the Interior Department’s database, Maksimov was stripped of the driving license in 2010 the previous time. The incident was also caused by the fact he was intoxicated with alcohol.
September 22, Maksimov dashed into a bus stop at a speed that some eyewitnesses assessed as being close to 200 kilometers per hour. He overran a group of people awaiting a bus there and virtually swept them sideways.
Five of the dead were teenagers who had just won the Moscow City Festival of Creative Works of the Children with Limited Capabilities.
September 24, a court issued a sanction to arrest Maksimov for two months, or for the duration of the investigative period.
A chain of major road accidents involving drunk drivers have prompted legislators and government officials to tighten criminal responsibility for drunk driving.
