Fatal hit and run crash results in grand jury indictment against Anatoliy Borovets - 07/28/20

Fatal hit and run crash results in grand jury indictment against Anatoliy Borovets

Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Rod Underhill announces the indictment of 25-year-old Anatoliy Borovets who is accused of operating a vehicle in a reckless manner that resulted in the death of Sergiy Volodimirovich Selivanov.

Borovets is charged with one count of manslaughter in the first degree, one count of felony failing to perform the duties of a driver (hit and run), one count of driving while suspended or revoked and one count of reckless driving.

Borovets is accused of losing control of his vehicle while driving at speeds estimated by law enforcement to be more than double the posted speed limit.

Law enforcement with the East Multnomah County Vehicular Crimes Team determined the speed of Borovets’ vehicle at the time of the crash to be at least 77 miles per hour, according to court documents.

The crash caused the vehicle Borovets was driving to roll multiple times before coming to rest against a building. The engine and transmission of the vehicle also separated from the body of the vehicle because of the high-speed impact.

When law enforcement arrived, they found the vehicle upside down and burning.

Witnesses reported the driver, determined to be Borovets, fled the scene. Investigators later learned that Borovets should not have been driving because his driving privileges were suspended.

Investigators located pieces of mail and other evidence associated with Borovets inside the vehicle, according to court documents. Borovets’ DNA was also found on the deployed steering wheel airbag, according to court documents.

Law enforcement attempted to immediately locate Borovets that night and spent the following days and weeks attempting to find him.

During the investigation, law enforcement located bank card transactions from two bars in Gresham in Borovets’ name from the crash date, according to court documents.

This case is being investigated by the Gresham Police Department, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office and the Portland Police Bureau.

Like in all criminal and civil matters, electronic copies of court documents, which are not subject to a protective order, are available to the public through the Oregon eCourt Information (OECI) system.

No additional information can be released by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office at this time pursuant to the Oregon Rules of Professional Conduct.

A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. Borovets is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
