Belarusian pop singer, party of the first part of the “Verasy” ensemble Yadviga Poplavskaya got in an accident. Now the star is in hospital with a broken leg.
“It happened on the crossing near the stop “hothouse combine”. I always turn up, cautiously looking down the road, because there are no traffic lights. There are “Zebra” and sign “pedestrian crossing”. But, unfortunately, I have long been convinced that many drivers do not react to it,” – said Jadwiga Poplavskaya reporters.
According to the artist, two cars stood and waited for her to cross the street. But a third car drove off and shot down the singer.
“The only consolation in my dire situation with a broken leg would see in this passage the light that would bring benefit and peace of mind as drivers and pedestrians. It’s so convenient to cross the road on green light and not jerk on the “Zebra” back and forth, looking, not rushing anyone at you. Once I stood on the roadway in such a transition, wondering: will stop somebody or not? What you’re saying – nobody even slowed down!” noted Poplavskaya.
