STAVROPOL, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Investigators have reopened the probe into the fatal road accident caused by Stavropol Territory legislator Valery Kalugin. "He is accused of violating traffic rules, manslaughter and escaping from the scene," the press service of the regional department of the Investigative Committee (IC) told ITAR-TASS.
The IC said it would carry out additional expert examinations.
Earlier on Thursday, Kalugin's colleagues voted to terminate his powers.
Thirty-four of 37 deputies voted for ousting Valery Kalugin, head of the regional parliament’s committee on legislation.
Speaker Yury Bely said more than half of Kalugin's colleagues, in a formal procedure, had demanded his resignation, and that his colleagues from the United Russia faction had also recommended him to step down.
The regional department of the Investigative Committee said Kalugin ran down a pedestrian on November 12, 2012, who died at the scene.
Criminal proceedings against Kalugin were later dropped due to "a lack of corpus delicti", but prosecutors challenged the Investigative Committee' decision and sent the case for reinvestigation.
