10 years old russian kid injured after crash in far east russia

A 10 years old Russian thrill-seeker’s decision to speed over a frozen lake has now landed him in trouble, with police investigating how his car-drawn chariot crashed with an oncoming vehicle.

Regional media in the Far Eastern Amur region, which borders China, reported on Sunday that a ten-year old boy was harmed in the incident. Footage from the dashboard of another vehicle caught the moment that his sled, fixed to the back of a Subaru, crossed the path of an accelerating Nissan as it skidded across the ice. 

Drivers and other passersby on the icy Chigirinsky reservoir, near Blagoveshchensk, can be seen rushing to help the child, who was thrown clear of the makeshift sled. The driver who had filmed the scene can be heard calling for an ambulance.

Reports say that local police have confirmed that “a minor was transported outside of the car, in violation of traffic rules,” and that “one person, a minor born in 2010, was injured in the accident.” Police are currently investigating, they added.

Last week, a woman in the Siberian city of Chita was killed after her inflatable tube sleigh crashed with a snowplough. Anastasia Grudinina, 38, was able to throw her young son clear of the crash, but later died in hospital due to injuries.
