Moscow Suffers Spate of Deadly Car Crashes

A series of road accidents around the Russian capital on Sunday evening left at least two people dead and a dozen others injured within a few hours, police were quoted by Russian media as saying Monday.

Three cars collided near the Belyayevo metro station on Profsoyuznaya Ulitsa, causing one of the cars to crash into the bus stop, an unidentified law enforcement official was quoted by Moskva city news agency as saying.

Seven people were hospitalized with various injuries, Moskva reported. The driver of the Hyundai Solaris that crashed into the bus stop was drunk, according to preliminary testing at the scene of the accident, Interior Ministry spokesman Andrei Galiakberov was quoted as saying by Moskva.

Shortly after midnight, four cars collided on 6th Radialnaya Ulitsa in southern Moscow, leaving a car passenger injured, a spokesperson for the city police was quoted by Moskva as saying.

One person was killed and three others were injured in a car crash on Ulitsa Butyrsky Val in central Moscow, a spokesperson for the city's road police said, Moskva reported.

In yet another deadly automobile accident, a woman died after being hit by a car on Prostornaya Ulitsa in eastern Moscow, Moskva reported.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
