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.
