20-years old Diana Berchenko who was injured during the car accident in Kharkiv on October 18 died in the hospital in Kharkiv. Director of Department of Information and Public Communication of the City Council Yury Sydorenko reported this at Facebook.
Diana Berchenko was hospitalized in serious condition after the accident and she was without regaining consciousness. Her sister Oksana Evteeva remains in the hospital.
The death toll mounted to six.
As we reported earlier a Lexus ran over a group of pedestrians in Kharkiv, northeastern Ukraine, on Wednesday evening. Alyona Zaitseva who drove the Lexus violated the road traffic, crashing into Volkswagen Touareg driven by Gennady Dronov which threw her car towards the pavement. Both drivers survived, but Lexus ran over a group of eleven people. Five pedestrians received lethal injuries; another six were taken to a hospital with injuries of various degrees of severity.
Zaitseva was detained for two months without a right for bailment. The court revoked her driver’ license and arrested both cars that participated in the accident.
Earlier, the prosecution stated that Zaitseva used opiates not long before the tragedy occurred. According to the information of the defense, the suspect took the sedatives.
The version of the Zaitseva defense is that the driver of the Touareg is guilty as he moved on the yellow traffic light. The defense of Gennady Dronov denies the accusation and claims that the driver of the Touareg moved on the green traffic light.
Dronov is the witness in this case but the police claimed that his status can change.
