The law enforcers decided to check the IDs of the driver and passenger of the car with foreign registration plates that raised patrol policemen’s suspicion.
Having spotted the police officers, the driver entered the oncoming lane and started fleeing. The suspects saw another police cruiser up ahead and drove onto the sidewalk trying to escape.
The police detained two foreigners under article 208 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine and placed them in a pre-trial detention facility. The perpetrators turned out to be citizens of the neighboring state with numerous criminal records. One of them is currently under investigation for stealing bags. The medical examination showed that the perpetrators were incapacitated by hard drugs when committed the accident.
The police initiated criminal proceedings. The pre-trial investigation is underway."
