Driver rams police car in Almaty; breaking path 91m long
A driver has rammed a police car at full speed in Almaty injuring three police officers. All of them were delivered to the hospital, one of them is in a grave condition. The rammer himself didn't get a single scratch, Tengrinews reports citing STV channel.
The Volkswagen Golf was driving down Raimbek street and failed to notice a police cordon that blocked the road to create some space for the workers constructing a pedestrian overpass. The 19 y.o. driver who got his driving license only 2 months ago swears that he was not trying to repeat an episode from Need for Speed, but just didn't see the police car in time to break. However, he is hard to believe, because his breaking path made 91 meters.
Before crushing into the policemen he first grazed a light-reflecting fencing. This probably saved a couple of lives.
The collision took place at the crossing of Raimbek and Momyshuly streets at around 3:20 a.m. on February 11.
