An 18-year-old driver crashed a Volvo xc-60 into a Citroen Saxo on one of the main boulevards in the Bulgarian town of Shumen and killed one woman inside the other car. The driver tested positive for the drug test; he was under the influence of amphetamines. The police detained the driver for 24 hours; he got his licence in May this year. Both he and another passenger in the car were uninjured. The second woman in the Saxo was in the hospital and getting treated for injuries. Doctors reported that she is in stable condition.
According to the police, a severe accident was reported at 9:18 p.m.Two people were reportedly trapped in another wrecked automobile when a car overturned. Two ambulances, a fire department, and police squads immediately arrived at the spot and rescued the women trapped in Citroen. One of them died on the site. She was identified as Svetomira Stancheva, a 22-year-old student of “Ecology” at the Bishop Konstantin Preslavski University of Shumen.
As far as the circumstances surrounding the accident can be determined, the Citroen was pulling out of the Praktiker shopping centre’s parking lot on the main “Simeon Veliki” street. A roundabout that controls traffic has signs in every direction that read B1—”Pass the road users with priority.” When the Volvo slammed into the Citroen, it had already entered the circle; it rolled through the ceiling and remained upside-down while the other car was dragged around 20 metres.
Zhechko Kyurkchiev, 18-year-old studying in 12’th grade, was driving the car. He tested positive in the initial alcohol and drug test. Traces of amphetamines were discovered in the trial. According to the eyewitnesses, the Volvo was moving at highway speeds. Some individuals reported it was moving between 90 and 120. Unexpected testimony from the dead girl’s relatives claims that the speed was 185 km/h at the moment of impact.
