An 18-year-old man from Skopje stole an Alfa Romeo vehicle and went on a rampage along Boris Trajkovski boulevard, where he directly hit a pedestrian who later succumbed to his injuries. The enraged driver did not help the victim, but continued to run wild along the boulevard, hitting the metal fence. After this, he left the vehicle and ran away, reports the Basic Public Prosecutor's Office.

As announced by the Public Prosecutor's Office, on August 30 of this year, the person unlawfully took someone else's motor vehicle from the parking area in front of a building located on the boulevard "Treta Macedonian Brigade" with the intention of using it for driving. Driving the stolen "Alfa Romeo" car with Skopje license plates, along the "Boris Trajkovski" boulevard, the suspect did not comply with the regulations and thereby endangered public traffic and put people's lives in danger.

He drove the car without a driver's license, and he did not adjust the speed of the vehicle to the properties of the road, the density of traffic and other traffic conditions, he lost control over the steering wheel and the vehicle went off the roadway onto the sidewalk on the right side, where he hit a body on foot. From the impact, the victim, who was walking as a pedestrian on the sidewalk, suffered severe injuries and later died.

After the impact, without providing help to the victim, the suspect continued to drive, again lost control over the steering wheel of the vehicle and hit a metal fence. He left the vehicle and fled the scene on foot, hiding from law enforcement.

- Since there are circumstances that indicate a danger of escape and there are special circumstances that justify the fear that the suspect will repeat the crime, the public prosecutor submitted to the judge of the preliminary procedure from the Basic Criminal Court Skopje this afternoon a proposal for determining the measure of detention, the announcement states. from JO.
