Ahmed Aivazov, 44, of Straldzha, was placed on remand at the request of the District Prosecutor’s Office in Yambol. He was charged with breaking traffic laws while driving a vehicle, which led to a collision with an on-duty police officer. In this way, Aivazov’s carelessness led to the death of a police officer. After conducting the alcohol test, it was observed that the accused was intoxicated while operating the vehicle. The crime occurred on September 26, 2022, on a road segment between Malenovo and Straldzha villages in the Yambol area.
The police determined during the investigation that the dead officer was a patrol member. He was checking on an illegally staying foreign citizen when the car driven by the accused struck him and ran away. The District Court’s judgement in Yambol is appealable to the Court of Appeal in Burgas.
On September 27, just after 9:00 pm, the event took place on the Malenovo-Straldzha route. In RU-Straldja, there was a refugee alarm. When a police patrol arrived, they located the Syrian refugee.

The two Romanians and the Bulgarian mother with the two kids were rushed to the hospital.
