The oligarch whose daughter’s speeding car rammed into pedestrians at a street crossing says he and his wife were ‘on our knees’ begging victims’ families to ‘forgive’ the 20 year old heiress.
Sickening videos of the crash showed Alyona Zaitseva’s black Lexus plough into the helpless crowd after she jumped a red light.
Five died and six were seriously injured in the tragic crash in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv.
The sociology student — who had previous fines for speeding — is held in detention for two months pending a criminal investigation into the crash, and faces up to ten years in jail if convicted.
