The policeman who fatally injured a 13-year-old girl on the pedestrian crossing on Thursday was indicted by the Prosecutor's Office attached to the District 1 Court for manslaughter. The spokesperson for the Prosecutor's Office attached to the District 1 Court, Radu Calin, announced on Friday that the policeman has the quality of a suspect and was heard by the prosecutors. He added that the case prosecutor is examining whether preventive measures should be taken in the case of the agent. "On January 13, 2022, the suspect, a police officer in the General Directorate of Police of the Municipality of Bucharest, the 15th Police Station, while driving a police car on a boulevard in District 1, when at a pedestrian crossing, due to non-compliance with the maximum speed limit allowed in localities, did not yield priority to the victim and injured her, causing traumatic injuries, which led to the immediate death of the victim. At the moment, the case prosecutor is considering taking some preventive measures," said Radu Calin. The representative of the Prosecutor's Office specified that the car driven by the policeman had the light signals in operation, but not the acoustic ones, and the agent was not on a mission. On the other hand, he refused to confirm that the policeman was going "to get food," as this information appeared in the press. "The suspect was informed of the accusation (...). It was established that he did not respect the speed regime in the respective area. An expertise was ordered to establish the exact speed," the spokesperson for the Prosecutor's Office detailed. The press office of the Bucharest Police reported on Friday that the policeman had obtained his driving license in Romania in 2012 and exchanged it in 2016 in the UK, being valid on the basis of reciprocity with the European Union. The accident happened on Thursday in District 1, when the police officer behind the wheel ran over two girls crossing the street. One of them was transported to hospital, and the other died at the scene of the accident.
