YEKATERINBURG, October 15 (Itar-Tass) — The investigation is assessing the damage from the collision of a passenger train and a locomotive in the Urals.
“At present, the probe is underway, and for the opening of a criminal case it is necessary to accurately determine the size of damage from the train collision suffered by the railway and the injured,” senior aide to the head of the Urals Transport Investigation Department of the Russian Investigative Committee (SK) Marina Bubkina told Itar-Tass. “So far only four people have sought medical attention, but we are trying to find out the exact number of the injured, therefore the criminal case opening is delayed.”
