Guy was hit by a car to death! As per driver he was traveling 20 miles per hour but how its possiable that Arkadiy hit the car’s windshild, break it and flew out in certain distance and lended on a ground? If driver would drive 20 miles per hour there wouldn’t be such strong impact and Arkadiy would still be alive! Police put on report that there was no signal sign but they were not even there and didnt know from what distance he flew out.
