Cristian Jereghi of the Ukrainian television channel 1 + 1, a member of the Babylon 13 creative association, made the claim on his page on Facebook, citing his own sources.

"Three different sources claim that the driver of KrAZ may have been a drunk driver," the journalist wrote.

At the same time, Jereghi said bad weather may also have caused the accident.

"The case is under investigation," Jereghi added.
