Article 345 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan provides for punishment for causing harm to health or death of a person due to careless violation of traffic rules or operation of vehicles. The penalty may include a fine, correctional labor, community service, arrest, or imprisonment for a certain period of time, depending on the severity of the consequences. If one person is killed in an accident, a prison sentence of up to 5 years is provided. In case of death of two or more people, the penalty can be from 5 to 10 years in prison.

According to eyewitnesses, the car in which there were school students, moved too fast and did not observe safety rules on the road. Participants in road accidents often forget that a traffic violation can have serious consequences and lead to tragic consequences, as in this case. It is important to remember that following traffic rules contributes not only to your safety, but also to the safety of others.

The causes of the accident are still being investigated, and investigators are conducting an investigation to establish all the circumstances of the incident. To prevent such cases in the future, you need to pay attention to educating your own safety on the road and strictly follow all traffic rules. It is especially important to prioritize safety when driving young drivers who lack experience and knowledge.
