Dobrovinsky appreciated the statement of Ephraim about the "split personality"

Lawyer Alexander Dobrovinsky said the words of actor Michael Ephraim that he "barely" knows itself, the footage, shot after the fatal accident in Central Moscow. The corresponding video published by the TV channel REN TV.

Earlier Yefremov during the study in court evidence for the case of an accident, said that "hardly" finds himself on the frame after the accident, mentioning the character from the novel "Strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde".

"To my question he said something do not know, and he really is Mr. Hyde, a split personality from the history of Stevenson. You can say anything. But at the time study was conducted, and it is in the case materials that Mr Efremov is of sound mind. And so this split is certainly interesting from the point of view of him, but to prove it will be difficult," said Dobrovinsky.

According to investigators, the evening of 8 June on the Garden ring, the actor behind the wheel of a Jeep Grand Cherokee drove into the oncoming lane and collided with "Lada". The driver of a domestic car, courier online-shop Sergey Zakharov, later died in hospital.

Efremov is under house arrest, he could face from 5 to 12 years in prison. He had originally pleaded guilty, but then the defense changed tactics. So, Efremov said in court that he remembered nothing about the accident, and therefore can not admit guilt.

"Strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" — story of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson. The genre is a reinvention of the theme of duplicity at an angle of nascent science fiction, where a sinister DoppelgangeR is getting a free ride thanks to a split personality.
