The Incident: After Causing Accident, Female Driver Strips Naked, Blocks Paramedics, and Wrestles Down Injured Little Girl
June 17th, in Shandong’s Linyi City Lanshan District, a mother and daughter pair were hit by a speeding car and sent flying, causing the death of the 4-year-old daughter and severely injuring the mother, who even after rescue is still in life-threatening condition.
After the accident, residents dialed 120 [the Chinese paramedics number]. When the ambulance arrived, something shocking happened…
The female driver responsible for the accident took off all her clothes, and blocked the ambulance from driving into the residential neighborhood to commence rescue.
The paramedics, being left no choice, could only get out of the ambulance and go in on foot, whereby they then carried the little girl to the ambulance.
At this time, the female driver responsible for the accident suddenly got up and yanked the little girl from within the ambulance down to the ground, preventing her from being taken to the hospital.
Victims’ Family: This is no accident, it’s intentional harm
Progress: The case has already been turned over to a criminal investigation team
Miss Zhang and Miss Wang are both residents of Linyi city’s Xiangxielidu residential community. Because they saw each others kids often, they had a loose acquaintance.
On June 17th around 10:00 am, the fates of the two violently collided, with tragedy emerging between the two.
Miss Zhang was speeding through in the residential community, but before she had driven very far, she crashed into Miss Wang and her daughter, sending them flying. Miss Wang is still in critical condition, and her daughter, only four years old, has already passed away.
In the midst of this tragedy is a mix of farces both shocking and bewildering.
After hitting the Wangs, Miss Zhang took off all her clothes, and shockingly impeded the paramedics from rescuing Miss Wang’s daughter, as if she had gone insane.
Yesterday [June 26th], a video of the incident went viral online, evoking hot debate, with Miss Zhang even being labeled a “Female Yao Jiaxin” in the video.
Reporters: Liang Geng, Xu Jie
Yesterday afternoon, reporters arrived in Linyi city Xiangxielidu residential community, where the aftermath of tragedy still lingers, and many residents are still talking about it. They brought the reporters to the site of the accident, a one-way street at the bottom of building that leads to the residential community exit, now without any visible bloodstains. Residents told the reporters, the driver responsible for the vehicle accident, Miss Zhang, was about 37 years old and the mother of two children. She lived in building 7, and the victims, Miss Wang and her daughter, lived in building 6. “They knew each other, because they’d often watch their children play outside the buildings.”
Miss Wang’s husband, Mr. Wang, told the reporters that the day of the accident, the family had planned on having Mr. Wang’s father over for Father’s Day. Because he had errands to run, Mr. Wang had Miss Wang go out to get groceries. “About 15 minutes before the accident, I had just called my wife,” said Mr. Wang. “She happily told me that she had just finished buying all the groceries, and I told her I would be back soon.” Seconds later he got another call from his wife’s phone, only this time his wife was not on the other end of the call.
Mr. Wang collected neighbor and witness accounts and evidence after the incident, and began to gradually understand what happened. He told the reporter, at the time, his wife had just finished buying groceries and was riding an electric scooter back with the daughter, while the son was riding a bicycle back with them, but just as they were about the reach their building, bad fortune struck. “The three of them were coming from the east and riding west. A speeding car came from the front and crashed into my wife’s scooter. My wife and daughter were both thrown from the vehicle. My daughter flew past two cars parked on the side of the road, and landed under another. The car responsible for the accident scraped several other parked cars, then stopped at the end of the road.”
The residents told the reporter, they understood the situation more or less the same way. After the accident, people dialed 110 [the Chinese emergency number] and 120 for rescue. When the ambulance arrived, it sent the mother and daughter to a nearby hospital for medical attention. Unfortunately, Miss Wang’s four-year-old daughter died. Miss Wang herself had internal bleeding in her skull. She has been through surgery, but is still being treated in intensive care at the present. As of yesterday night, she was still in critical condition. “When I went to the hospital, saw my wife, and then saw my daughter, I was paralyzed and fell over.” Mr. Wang said he was dazed with grief at the time. “Everything was fine before, how could have this happened?”
The Video in Replay
The driver responsible prevents rescue naked, pulls the injured girl down out of the ambulance.
As the accident occurred, a property owner inside Xiangxielidu residential community filmed the entire rescue process on tape, then gave then victims’ family the footage. On the 24th, netizen “linyiyuanqing” uploaded the 5 minute and 17 second video to the internet.
As the video starts, about 10 people crowd around a light colored sedan. Beside the sedan lay a middle-aged woman. Underneath her is a car’s wheel. The crowd struggles to lift the car up, with city residents joining in at this time to help lift it up, and seconds later, a little girl wearing orange is carried out from under the car. Both of her eyes are closed, her two legs already unable to stand, and the left side of her face covered in blood.
A man and a paramedic run over, pick up the girl that was rescued from underneath the car and carry her over to the ambulance, putting her inside. Right at this time, the naked lady that had been blocking the ambulance gets up off the ground, pushes away the paramedics at the door, crawls into the ambulance, tries to carry the girl out, and in the struggle ends up falls out onto the ground with the little girl. This action makes the surrounding city residents gasp and yell in shock, “What is she doing?!” When the little girl was carried back into the ambulance, the naked woman again lies back down in front of the ambulance. But the moment vehicle begins to drive away, she gets back up yet again and throws herself toward the car, grabbing onto the ambulance’s front bumper. After the crowd pried her hands off, the ambulance backed away and leaves, while the naked woman again lies down in the same spot.
Victims’ Family: Doesn’t accept the “accident” explanation.
“Why was she driving so fast? Some people said she had an argument at home at home and came out angry, but we have reason to suspect she simply wanted to hit someone, not targeting anyone in particular, simply to vent her anger,” Mr. Wang’s older brother told the reporter, that the Miss Zhang at the time was “intentionally driving fast.” Some residents had indicated that Miss Zhang looked all riled up when she came out of her home, saying “so infuriating!” and even couldn’t find her own car when she got downstairs. Because of these accounts, reporters went to Miss Zhang’s residence in building 7, but no one opened the door after knocking several times.
“Had she [Miss Zhang] not caused a ruckus, the kid might have had a chance to be saved,” says Miss Wang’s family. They think the farce that happened afterward [after the initial accident] is unforgivable. “There’s no way that was an unintentional mistake. The residents, people online, we all don’t think it was, and we’re awaiting a just outcome.”
Last night, reporters went to the hospital that dispatched the ambulance. They claimed the paramedics that went to help during the accident were not in, so they could not answer a lot. “It’s hard to predict what will happen in Miss Wang’s situation. But of course, the interruption has reduced her chance for survival.”
The Neighbors: She’s a college professor
Several residents from the neighborhood told the reporters that because they often brought their kids outside to play in the residential community, they’ve met each other, often chatted with each other, so in their view, Miss Zhang seemed “very normal.”
“We often watch our kids together, she’s really quite a good person, and had good character. She was particularly good to her kids, and never gossiped. She even gave my kid English learning materials. I would have never thought it’d be her.” At the same time, there were some residents who felt sorry for Miss Zhang. With her at the time both having trouble finding her car and then driving so fast, she must’ve been in a bad state of mind and that’s how this happened.
The person responsible for the accident, Miss Zhang, and the victims, the Wangs, were both homeowners at Linyi city Lanshan district’s Xiangxielidu residential community. One family lived in building 6, the other in building 7. Before the incident, both families knew each other, and often greeted each other in passing.
Mr. Wang’s older brother told reporters that according to the neighbors’ understanding, the person responsible Miss Zhang Yan works at the Shandong Advanced Medical Junior College’s Chinese Medicine Research Office, and is currently a lecturer for a freshman Chinese medicine course. “According to what we know, she’s taught medical psychology and psychiatry,” Miss Wang’s older brother to reporters.
Reporters contacted the Shandong Advanced Medical Junior College yesterday afternoon. Mr. Chen from the human resources department told reporters that there was indeed a teacher named “Zhang Yan” at the college, but the school had received no information as to whether or not their Zhang Yan is the same as the one involved in the accident.
Lawyer’s Opinion: She could be suspected of murder.
Lawyer Li Jiandong of Beijing Yingke Law Firm (in Jinan) believes that causing a traffic accident is a type of unpremeditated crime, that comes from negligence, that reported case has already exceeded the bounds of what defines a traffic accident. Speeding in a residential community street alone should be dangerous driving [reckless driving].
“Not proactively trying to help someone, or obstructing help, has already in the criminal law been deemed indirect murder.” In response to the report of the instigator repeatedly thwarting the paramedics during the rescue, if it can be shown that the obstruction directly led to the death of the little girl, it can be deemed murder. If however the little girl was already dead before the obstruction, then it can only be deemed an aggravating circumstance upon the offense of dangerous driving.
City residents believe Miss Zhang’s behavior during the incident was either product of [temporary] insanity or faked insanity. Li Jiandong believes public security organs will make a determination. If Miss Zhang had a mental disorder at the time or has a dormant mental disorder that flared up, she would not be given a criminal sentence, and would only have to accept civil liability. If she did not have a mental disorder or was otherwise not mentally ill at the time, she would have to take the appropriate responsibility for her actions.
Comments from Youku:
She has to get the same sentence as Yao Jiaxin, otherwise it won’t appease the people’s fury! She wants to be naked so badly, then let her be shot dead naked!
What was she thinking at the time? Is there something wrong with her? The only proper thing to do in this type of situation is to actively take responsibility for your mistake, and immediately try remedying [the situation]. Do you think their family is going to forgive you after blocking the ambulance and preventing it from rescuing [the injured]? Isn’t it certain that you’re going to be ruined after this? Aren’t you going to feel the guilt for the rest of your life?
She was blocking the ambulance to buy time! The reparations/compensation for crashing into someone and killing someone in a car crash are different! This child was still so young! She took off her clothes so: 1.) No one would touch her! 2.) Make it look like she was crazy. People these days! Their humanity has all been twisted!
Over 5,000 years of Chinese civilization degenerating to this day, why is Chinese people’s ugliness so prominent at this particular time, making people so deeply sad, angry, afraid, and ashamed???!!!!
Of all the people around, was there really no one who dared to do something about her? Is she still TM human?
I watched it, felt the lady was faking being crazy to evade responsibility.
I saw a report in the newspaper. Just what could have caused a college professor who has her own family and child to cause this kind of harm to her neighbor? I wonder just how long she has been repressing it…
Comments from Sina Video:
Is this any different than the Yao Jiaxin incident?
Definitely pretending to be insane/mentally ill.
南天飘北雪： (replying to the above)
I don’t think she can be charged with murder, but she can be charged with manslaughter caused by grave misconduct/negligence, sentenced to life, so that she spends the rest of her days in prison.
Just TMD drag her out of the way! Why were the police so timid here?!…[referring to the police not wanting to move the lady because she was naked]
What kind of human nature is this? The people all around could have gone and pulled her away. This [blocking the ambulance, pulling the girl out of the ambulance] is simply murder.
