The driver of a snowplough involved in a deadly accident at a Moscow airport that killed Total CEO Christophe de Margerie was drunk, Russian investigators said Tuesday.

"It has been established that the driver of the snowplough was in a drunken state," the investigating unit said in a statement. It added that its preliminary theory was that "an error by air traffic controllers and the actions of the snowplough driver" were to blame for the deadly accident. Possible mistakes by the pilots were also being looked at.
