The head of the Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, asked for a report on the investigation into the case of an accident in which three schoolchildren on bicycles were hit. The lawyer of one of the victims believed that the security forces were allegedly delaying the case. This was reported by the press service of the Investigative Committee.
“The lawyer reports that law enforcement officials are delaying the investigation of the criminal case. Other arguments criticizing the investigation into the circumstances of the traffic accident were also presented. The head of the department instructed to present a report on the arguments voiced in the appeal regarding the investigation into the circumstances of the accident,” the Sledkom telegram channel reported.
The accident occurred on July 8 at the 22nd kilometer of the Revda-Degtyarsk-Kurganovo highway. The driver of a Lada Priora fell asleep at the wheel and hit three minors on bicycles.
