After three missions in space, Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev ran into trouble on Earth when he ran over a colleague on a dark road outside Moscow less than three weeks after returning from his last mission in orbit.
Russian space company Roscosmos said Artemyev did not see an employee of the Star City Cosmonaut Training Center crossing the road in the dark on Monday evening.
He said in a statement on Tuesday that Artemyev immediately provided first aid to the victim, Anatoly Uronov, who was hospitalized with multiple broken bones. Roscosmos pointed out that Artemyev was sober and immediately called the police and an ambulance.
