At night Traffic Police inspectors of a Detached Traffic Police Battalion No. 2 when patrolling a road in the Narimanov District noticed smoke coming from under the wheels of a passing-by fuel tanker. In order to avoid an accident the police stopped the vehicle.
It turned out that the driver did not see the smoke, which was coming from under the wheels. The Traffic Police officers organized a cordon and a detour of the danger zone and assisted in eliminating the problem.
As it turned out, the smoke was caused by the front left wheel bearing. After the repair the fuel tanker continued its trip. The fuel tanker from the Volgograd Region was carrying petrol to Lyman village.
