Court in Altai territory will continue to question witnesses Wednesday in the fatal car crash of Mikhail Yevdokimov
The Zonalny district court in Russia's Altai territory will continue to question witnesses Wednesday in the fatal car crash of governor Mikhail Yevdokimov. On Tuesday, the court read out the indictment in the criminal case which prosecutors said had been under special supervision from the beginning. The criminal case over Yevdokimov's death was opened under the article on violation of traffic regulations which caused the death of two or more persons. Prosecutors brought charges against railwayman Oleg Shcherbinsky, the driver of the Toyota, which had brushed against the governor's car, making it skid off the road to ram into a tree. Yevdokimov's wife Galina, the only survivor of the four people in the governor's Mercedes, has been in Barnaul hospital since. Investigators said Shcherbinsky had violated the third provision of the traffic regulations which says a driver should yield to cars with flashers on. But the defendant's lawyer insists that to be given priority, the governor should have had a siren working. He also said the governor's car had exceeded the speed limit. Eyewitnesses said Yevdokimov's flasher was working at the time of the accident, but the siren was off. Shcherbinsky did not admit his guilt. If convicted, he may face up to seven years in prison. Altai governor Mikhail Yevdokimov, his driver Ivan Zuyev and guard Alexander Ustinov were killed in the road accident at the 318th kilometer of the M-52 Biisk-Barnaul highway in the Zonalny district on August 7. The court intends to question some 40 witnesses. To find out details of the accident, it will also make use of expert examinations’ results
