Putin’s official presidential car involved in head-on horror crash in Moscow, killing Russian president’s ‘favourite chauffeur’

putin car crash

The presidential BMW was travelling on Kutuzovsky Avenue in the Russian capital when a Mercedes veered from the other side of the road, smashing into it head-on.

Putin was not in the car at the time.

Just a warning, Vladimir – don’t mess with Hillary.

    “Just a warning, Vladimir – don’t mess with Hillary”. I wonder if it was just a simple traffic accident?

      unless the driver of the other car had a heart attack i doubt it.

        I read over at the Sun the driver was scheduled to retire soon. Maybe he was the target and Putin didn’t want him writing no memoirs.

          Naw… A little polonium on his toothbrush, no need to ruin a couple of fine German automobiles.

        A two head shot suicide like Vince foster

    • Nothing is ever an accident with Putin.

      And yet it is.

    If this was a warning, well they missed. Now watch what Putin does. Ex-KGB guys don’t mess around. There is going to be a lot of purging.

    “It is not known if the driver of the other vehicle was injured in the crash.”

    Tomorrow that will be the driver of the other vehicle died of a brain hemorrhage.

      The Saudis pay for both so too hard to tell.

    Very strange.
    Putin’s car seemed to be moving into the VIP lane at tremendous speed and skidded over into the Merc. Yet it was the Merc that behaved like an armoured car as it came to a stop and it was Putin”s that bounced off and spun more..

    Nice offset head on. About as bad as it gets.
    Distracted driver with phone?

    So, ordinary Moscow traffic then.
