Vladimir Putin's Official Car Involved In Head-On Crash In Moscow

Vladimir Putin's official car has been involved in a head-on crash in Moscow, killing the Russian president's 'favourite chauffeur'.

The head-on collision involved Vladimir Putin's official black BMW, though the Russian president was not in the car at the time.

Russian media claimed the BMW was driven by Putin's favourite official driver and that the man was killed instantly.

The driver is yet to be named but he has been reported to have had over 40 years of driving experience as an official driver.

The clean-up operation took a number of hours and Kutuzovsky Avenue was closed after the crash.
