This footage–caught on camera–of a gnarly accident in Irkutsk, Russia, shows a Russian woman speeding out of nowhere and plowing into a couple of female pedestrians on the sidewalk like they were bowling pins. The most shocking thing is how no one gives a shit about the seriously-wounded pedestrians. Bystanders walk past the smashed pedestrians as if they’re sidewalk trash, and the driver doesn’t even check on the pedestrians lying a few feet away–the driver’s only worried about the damage to her fender. One of pedestrians was killed, and the other, the dead woman’s sister, has been left paralyzed. But no charges have been filed so far, cuz as it turns out, the driver of the fancy white car turned out to be the 27-year-old daughter of the regional election committee chairwoman.
But these days in Russia, the Internet still remains something of a safe haven for civil society. So thanks to an Internet campaign by outraged Russians, the driver who killed one and maimed another–Anna Shavenkova– is now, two months after hitting them, finally under investigation by local police for vehicular manslaughter.
All in all, a lovely story.
