The typical Life.ru reporter: as we are told, they are mostly women (remember how Ovi tried to cover the lenses at the Olympics in Vancouver?) and they are everywhere (talk about good, bad and ugly)
The woman who films the video, shouts: "Alexander, tell us how it happened". Alex ignores her.
Right before Semin's passenger tells her three(!) times: "Don't film, you are not allowed to shoot". She replies, "Oh, come on..."
Alexander Semin's vacation in Krasnoyarsk was marred by a car accident. The accident occurred around 10:30 am on the Miner street. 26-year-old forward was driving in his Mercedes when he suddenly heard a thud and felt a bump in the rear bumper. As it turned out his luxury car was rammed by an old model 6 Zhiguli.
"I didn't even understand how it happened", said Alexander. "I was just driving, and suddenly a hit."
Semin's friends arrived immediately after the collision to help and support Alex. It was found that in a traffic jam the driver simply didn't hit the brakes in time and rear ended a car of the NHL star. Fortunately nobody was hurt.

The traffic police officers arrived on the scene and drawn up a protocol.
"There was a sliding collision," told to the press service of the Krasnoyarsk. "Both drivers did not plead guilty. The damage is small. We are investigating how and why the collision has happend.
From Life.ru report it sounded like Semin's car was rear ended, but here's the report from Sport-Express:
"Around 11 AM the silver Mercedes, moving on the Shakhterov street in the direction of the Berezin street, collided with Zhiguli, third model, that was moving in the same direction. Both drivers claimed that they went straight without changing lanes. Zhiguli had deformed bumper while the Mercedes had a scratch on the side of its body. Both cars were with the passengers, but no one was hurt."
Alex Ovechkin: "My first car was Russian made Zhiguli, model 6" (VAZ-2106). It was produced from 1976 to 2001 by VAZ from Togliatti, the home town of Victor Kozlov and Ilya Bryzgalov.
