3 Killed in Mazda Wreck

Three people were killed and four injured after a Mazda sedan rammed into a garbage truck in Moscow early Thursday, RIA-Novosti reported, citing an unidentified law enforcement source.

All of the victims were in the Mazda, two of whom were women who shared the front passenger seat, the source said, adding that the women, who died, as well as the driver and one of the injured passengers were Kyrgyz citizens.

The Mazda, which had Lipetsk region license plates, exceeded the speed limit and hit the garbage track, which was making a turn on tram rails in violation of traffic rules, Rossia-24 television reported.
