Teenage hit-and-run kills one, injures two

A terrible road traffic accident occurred in the Russian city of Kirov on the night of May 9/10. A speeding Lada-Kalina car knocked over three pedestrians aged 18-20 crossing the street.

One of them died instantly, two others were seriously injured and taken to hospital.

The driver tried to escape from the scene but was arrested later. It turned out to be a 13-year-old boy who stole the keys from his mother’s car to go for a joyride.

According to Russian law, he cannot be brought to trial because he is underage.

Given the speed the teenager was driving at, the two men who survived the accident are extremely lucky to be alive. Video footage of the hit-and-run was recorded by a traffic police surveillance camera installed on the crossing.
