Ambulance mows down girl hit by drunk policeman

A Russian police officer hit three girls with his car while driving drunk in Siberia, and one was killed after being run over by the ambulance sent to treat them.

The police officer, who was driving his personal car, ran into the girls as they walked at night on the side of the road near Kargosok, a town in the Tomsk region, the local interior ministry said.

One of the girls, aged 15, was then run over and killed by an ambulance that arrived at the scene, the ministry said.

The other two girls are being treated in hospital for head wounds and were in stable condition.
