MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. Four people were killed and three injured early on Monday in a car accident in the Moscow Region, regional police told TASS.
The accident occurred on the 51st kilometer of the Yaroslavskoye Highway near the village of Golygino northeast of Moscow.
“A Peugeot car collided with a truck parked on the roadside for unknown reasons. Four people died in the accident and three were injured,” the police press service said.
Some 30,000 people are annually killed in car accidents in Russia. The most widespread reasons for the accidents are a poor condition of roads as well as violations of traffic regulations: drunk driving, illegally crossing into the oncoming lane and running red lights.
Laws have been adopted recently to introduce tougher responsibility for the most serious violations of traffic regulations.
