A 30-year-old Bulgarian woman risks up to 5 years in prison for killing a motorcyclist on the road in the Swiss Italian-speaking canton of Ticino on March 23, 2018. According to the Swiss radio RSI, the Bulgarian living abroad took with her car a motorcycle with two French citizens. The Bulgarian woman was under the effect of cannabis, and on top of that she took a selfie with the phone while driving.

The woman crashed the motorcycle after it stopped at a red light. A 51-year-old Frenchman died and his companion, a 35-year-old compatriot, was injured.

The investigation of the accident did not find a direct connection between taking the selfie and the accident, but nevertheless the Bulgarian woman will be punished for that, as it is forbidden while driving.

Prosecutor Marguerite Lanzilo has asked the Bulgarian woman to stand trial on charges of manslaughter and injuring another person. It will begin in early October. The hypothesis of the accusation is that the woman drove carelessly because of the previously taken drugs – it has been proven that the Bulgarian woman used cannabis before driving. In addition, she was distracted because she snapped at least eight selfies before the crash.

She got on the road leading to Bruzino Arsizio. The two Frenchmen were traveling in front of the Bulgarian woman’s Mini Cooper car and stopped at a traffic light in front of a construction site. At that moment, they were crushed by the car of the Bulgarian woman, who was traveling at 70 km per hour. The 51-year-old man was trapped under the car and died almost immediately. His companion was seriously injured.
