Investigation into governor's car crash extended
The press service of the regional department of the Investigative Committee announced the extension of the investigation on Wednesday, Itar-Tass reports.
"The investigator for special cases will carry out the necessary work towards completing the probe. He will also decide on bringing charges before the designated date," an Investigative Committee spokesman said, according to Itar-Tass.
The vehicular accident occurred in December on the Yekaterinburg-Serov highway. The crash involved three vehicles - a Volga Syber, a Skoda Octavia and the governor's Mercedes. The 65-year-old driver of the Volga Syber was killed at the scene, while the governor and his driver were seriously injured. The man and woman in the Skoda received no injuries. Governor Misharin was flown to Germany immediately following the accident for treatment. He was able to return to work in early February.
Alexander Misharin was appointed governor in 2009 following the resignation of previous governor Eduard Rossel.
