3 Killed by Luxury Cars

Three people were killed over the weekend in two unrelated road accidents in Moscow involving a Lexus and a Bentley sedan, Interfax reported Monday.

The Lexus struck and killed two unidentified Kyrgyz natives, aged 37 and 21, on a crosswalk in southern Moscow, the report said.

The abandoned car was found not far from the scene, but its owner told police that he had allowed another man to drive it, Newsru.com reported, without identifying either man.

The Bentley killed Igor Ilyin, 47, near the Kashirskaya metro station, Lifenews.ru said.

The car’s owner, Emil Darzhonov, 29, said the car was stolen, and the two girls who were detained driving it told police that an unidentified friend had been in the driver’s seat during the accident but fled.
