The court in Novosibirsk released the driver who knocked over a Siberian woman with a sidecar

The Kirovskiy District Court in Novosibirsk refused to place the 48-year-old driver Konstantin Volobuev, who ran into a woman with a wheelchair, on February 15.

A criminal case was opened against the motorist (it turned out to be a food delivery man) under part 3 of article 30 – paragraphs “a”, “b”, “and”, part 2 of article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (attempted murder of two persons, a minor for hooligan motives).

The incident, due to which the man was detained, took place on February 15 in one of the courtyards of the Kirovsky district. A resident of the house made a remark to a delivery man in a Toyota because of the parking lot. After that, the driver ran into a 36-year-old woman with her one-year-old daughter in a wheelchair. The child was not injured, and the mother suffered a broken leg. After some time, the motorist was detained. The lawyer told the NGS what threatens the driver and how they can interpret his actions.

The accident hit the video:

Today the Kirovsky District Court considered the investigator’s petition to place the driver in a pre-trial detention center. The investigator asked to take Volobuev into custody, as he fears that he might go into hiding and interfere with the investigation. The investigator also noted that Volobuev knows the identity and residence addresses of the witnesses, and faces a long term for the crime of which he is suspected.

At the same time, the prosecutor, according to the court, supported the driver and his lawyer, who stated that there were no grounds for placing the man in a pre-trial detention center.

The court found that the motorist is married and has lived at the same address for a long time. Also, the investigators did not provide information about his criminal record.

– As follows from the materials submitted, KA Volobuev is not convicted, the materials of the petition do not contain any other evidence and the body of the preliminary investigation has not been presented, – they say on the court’s website.

At the same time, earlier the investigators stated that the driver was prosecuted in 1999 under paragraphs “a”, “b”, part 3 of Article 158 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (theft committed with illegal entry into a home; from an oil pipeline, oil product pipeline, gas pipeline). Volobuev is not officially employed.

– Any evidence or factual data indicating that the suspect intends to hide from the preliminary investigation and the court, that is, evidence confirming the need for him to choose the most severe preventive measure associated with isolation from society – detention, by the preliminary investigation body not presented. The court, from the data presented, did not see the existence of exceptional circumstances indicating the need to elect a preventive measure against the suspect KA Volobuev in the form of detention, – the court made a decision.

The driver was released in the courtroom. The decision at the time of publication did not enter into force.
