Criminal case opened against missing traffic police inspector

Investigators have opened a criminal case against a 24-year-old traffic police inspector from the Serovsky department.

According to a report by the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, Maksim Mayevsky is suspected of a crime under part 1 of article 264 of RF Criminal Code. Investigators allege that Mayvesky was driving his father's car near the Kiselyovskoye reservoir with two passengers in the back seat on May 21. He allegedly lost control of the car and wheeled off into a ditch, overturning the car. The inspector was not hurt, though one passenger sustained a compression fracture of the spine, reports.

Investigative operations are under way to establish the circumstances of the incident and to consolidate evidence. The district directorate of traffic police is also being investigated on the possibility that it may have concealed the fact that the inspector had been driving the car at the moment of the accident.

Investigators suspect the inspector was one of the passengers aboard the An-2 plane, which went missing on June 11 of this year. Rescuers are still searching for the missing plane and its passengers, according to
