December 12, in the evening, a local resident reported to Uzhgorod city police department that he had witnessed a traffic accident.


The man said that a few minutes before, on Mynaiska street in Uzhgorod, the driver of a dark "Mercedes" had hit a young woman who was crossing the road on the pedestrian crossing. Rather than take the victim to hospital, the driver pressed the gas pedal and ran from the scene.


An ambulance delivered the victim to Uzhgorod City Clinical Hospital, but despite the efforts of doctors, the 20-year-old girl died in the intensive care from the received injuries...
