MOSCOW, May 5 (Itar-Tass) - A special commission has been set up to probe into the short circuit accident at the Moscow metro that injured three persons on Sunday, a spokesman for the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass.
“Information about the accident was sent to the Moscow metro’s prosecution office. The causes of the accident will be established by a Moscow metro commission jointly with officers of the Moscow metro police department,” the spokesman said.
According to earlier reports, three people got injured in a short circuit in the Moscow underground on Sunday. Three people were taken to hospital, as they got poisoned with combustion products. The accident took place on Sunday in the tunnel between stations Vykhino and Ryazansky Prospect, when a short circuit caused smoke. Traffic between these stations was suspended. It took five hours to remedy the malfunction and resume traffic.
“After the accident, three passengers sought medical help. They were taken to the Sklifosovsky emergency medicine hospital with a preliminary diagnosis of intoxication with combustion products,” the spokesman added.
