A man was sentenced to a 5-year- prison term for injuring a pedestrian and fleeing from the scene. The impact took place earlier this year in Floresti.
The sentence was pronounced by the magistrates of the Soroca Court, Floresti headquarters. The execution of the sentence was suspended for a period of 5 years.
According to the prosecutors, the accident occurred on the evening of January 17, on the central street in Floresti. The defendant was driving a Volkswagen Golf. He did not adapt the speed to the road conditions and buffered a pedestrian, who was crossing the street.
As a result of the impact, the man left the scene of the road accident and did not render assistance to the victim who, dies on the spot from the injuries received.
Prosecutors consider the verdict of the first instance to be too gentle and have already challenged the sentence. Investigators insist on condemning the man to a punishment by imprisonment.
