“Initially, yesterday he said that he was driving and was involved in an accident,” the lawyer said.

When asked if Efremov pleaded guilty, the lawyer answered in the affirmative.

According to him, the interrogation has not yet taken place "for a number of technical reasons."

Earlier it was reported that the Moscow prosecutor’s office took control of the investigation.

The accident occurred on the evening of June 8 at Smolenskaya Square. Jeep Grand Cherokee under the control of Efremov drove into the oncoming lane and collided with a Lada van.

An examination showed that the actor was drunk at the time of the accident.
