A new video angle of Putin’s driver’s fatal crash was released.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “favorite chauffeur” has died in what looks like a high speed, deliberate head-on crash. The Russian president, who was just in attendance at the G20 Summit in China, was not in the car at the time.
CCTV footage that caught the accident on Moscow’s Kutuzovsky Avenue this morning shows a Mercedes suddenly crossing to the wrong side of the street and violently crashing headlong into the BMW being driven by Putin’s driver.
Honestly, when I first saw this story, I didn’t even bother to report on it because I’ve been to Moscow and it’s a city where basically everyone is bound to eventually die in a car crash if they live there long enough. Seriously, you can just look out the window and watch car crashes all day.
However, this new footage makes it look deliberate.
