NALCHIK, August 14 (Itar-Tass) - According to early reports, the car carrying a Russian senator from Nalchik (Kabardino-Balkar Republic) early on Wednesday, drove into the oncoming lane and collided head-on with a car moving in the opposite direction.
Senator Albert Kazharov from the Kabardino-Balkar Republic and his driver died in the road accident on the Kavkaz federal highway. The car was on the way from Nalchik to the airport of Mineralnyye Vody, a source from a republican law enforcement agency told Itar-Tass.
