30 August 2022-nd

Non-observance of traffic rules by pedestrians once again led to the tragedy. This was announced by an official of the Main State Traffic Police Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Mubariz Aghayev.
So, on August 26, at about 23:00, a resident of Baku Faig Guliyev, driving a car with the state registration plate “Toyota Prius” 77-PJ-712, hit three pedestrians crossing the road while on the move in the Sabail District of the capital.

As a result, a Turkish citizen Yusif Turksoy, born in 1978, died on the spot, and other pedestrians - Ahmadova Khayala Farman, born in 1987, and Ismayilova Gulnar Mukhtar, born in 1988, were hospitalized with injuries of varying severity. A criminal case has been initiated, an investigation is underway.
Unfortunately, one of the reasons for this traffic accident was the attempts of the above-mentioned persons to cross the road where the cars are moving intensively and at high speed, which is not considered for pedestrians, despite the presence of an underground pedestrian crossing in the area.

Main State Traffic Police Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs appeals to the population to draw the right conclusions from the causes of this traffic accident, to observe the rules of the road without exception, not to be indifferent to the life and health of themselves and other road users.
