Russian Woman Hit by Moscow Police Car in Pedestrian Crossing

A woman in Moscow was injured when she was hit by a road-police car while walking along a pedestrian crossing, a news report said Wednesday.

The police officer who had been driving the car called an ambulance and provided the woman with first aid, the Ekho Moskvy radio station reported on its website.

The woman was taken to a trauma clinic to be treated for “contusions” after the incident on Moscow's Ulitsa Solzhenitsyn on Tuesday night, the report said.

The police officer was sober at the time of the incident, the report added.
