GORKI, December 5. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has ordered to analyze the country’s transport security legislation after a major road accident in the Khanty-Mansiysk autonomous region, western Siberia, killed 12 people, ten of them children.
"An investigation is underway and regardless of its outcome the proposals have been voiced on changing the legislation - including general rules of road traffic and the rules on the transportation of children and the criminal responsibility," Medvedev said at the meeting with deputy prime ministers.
"All these issues need to be carefully analyzed," he stressed.
The accident involving a passenger bus, a truck and two cars occurred at 16:00 local time on December 4 along the 926th kilometer of the Khanty-Mansiysk-Tyumen highway. The bus was carrying a youth acrobatics team. A total of 34 people, including 27 children, were injured in the accident. Some 19 people were hospitalized.
