Wife Backing Up Car Hits and Kills Husband, Her Own Head Crushed as She Had Stuck it Out the Window
A happy family, shattered in the blink of an eye, leaving behind only an older daughter who had just finished her high school entrance exams and whose grades aren’t bad, as well as a 6-year-old younger daughter who barely understands the meaning of the word “tragedy”.
This tragedy happened two nights ago around 8;30pm, in the underground parking garage of Ningbo Fenghua Yangguang Mingdu Community.
The accident happened at night at about 8:35 pm.
At that time, [the driver of this] Lexus wanted to park it into the garage, while another community resident Ms. Dong was also parking her car at a nearby parking space.
Ms. Dong says she heard a “boom” at the time, felt something was not right, and that something bad must’ve happened. By the time she had parked her car and rushed over, she found another resident already assisting the victims: ”At the time, the man was stuck between the Lexus and the wall. He didn’t appear to be bleeding much on his body. And in the driver’s seat was a woman, whose head was stuck between the car door and the garage pillar, with lots of blood.”
The car had them pinned tight, and Ms. Dong hurried out to call the community security guards and other residents for help, then dialed 119 [fire department], 110 [police department], and 120 [emergency medical services].
A lot of people rushed over and had to push the car forward a little before the pinned female driver fell down. At the time, she was still breathing. However, the man who was pinned by the car had already stopped breathing by the time he was rescued.
This accident spread around the community very quickly, and everyone was hoping the woman would make it. Unfortunately, the news that very quickly came from the hospital was still bad news.
According to the community residents, this is how the tragedy happened:
The husband himself got out of the car to guide her [in backing up], walked to the rear end of the car, and suddenly, with a roar of the throttle, the Lexus reversed at high speed, and pinned the husband who was standing between the rear door of the car and the garage wall as he gave a loud cry.
Hearing her husband’s scream, the wife at the steering wheel promptly opened the car door, stuck her body out to see [what happened], and saw her husband pinned there. Panicking, she planned to drive the car forward, but perhaps because of of being too panicked, the car’s transmission gear lever was still in reverse, not forward.
When the gas pedal was finally pressed, it ended the lives of the two–Instead of moving forward, the car continued to back up. The husband was crushed even tighter, while the wife’s head which she had stuck out of the car was also caught between the car door and the garage wall…
And during that time, their 6-year-old younger daughter was right in the car.
Comments from QQ:
This incident shows that we must be strict and demanding beginning when people first learn how to drive, otherwise even with your driver’s license, bad things will happen sooner or later. If you are “lucky”, it’ll only be small scratches, but if you are “unlucky”, people will get either injured or killed!
So tragic! May the deceased rest in peace!
The driving skills of most new drivers don’t pass requirements! Especially women. I hope the learning process at driving schools can be more strict, so that whoever gets a driver’s license has mastered all courses. So that shocking traffic accidents will happen less!
I’m currently learning how to drive at a driving school. I used to complain about the [driving test] being made harder this year. But after I seeing their tragedy, I raise both hands up in support [of the change]. After all, this is about life and death!
Seeing this news, I can only sigh. Even if you didn’t believe in fate, you’d believe it now. It indeed is “There’s no suffering you can’t endure, but there is happiness you can’t enjoy.” Such a tragedy! May the deceased rest in peace.

Many women drivers are no different than murderers!
The last place you wanna be when someone’s backing up a car is at the rear end!! He’s not the first one who was has been crushed to death. Everyone should be beware.
With this kind of tragedy, what’s important is to take it as a warning, as opposed to simply calling her a SB as if one’s own driving skills are superior.
Fallen from heaven to hell in a blink of an eye. Only those who have gone through this know how it feels. The older daughter must learn how to be strong.
A tragedy, so heart-aching. An otherwise happy family now separated by life and death like this. The poorest ones are the girls.
Turns out buying a Japanese car will indeed result in your whole family dying!!!
Putting aside whether the design of the garage is reasonable or not, just how these two got their driver’s licenses is questionable!
The facts proves that one really mustn’t drive a Japanese car. The poor pair of daughters, to be without parents from here on out. Stay away from Japanese products!
The consequences of marrying a stupid wife are very serious.
I just wanna say, when women drive, it’s like men driving drunk, a dangerous situation. It should be forbidden for women to drive.
It’s not within women’s nature to operate mechanical stuff, so it is better if they avoid driving. Don’t mistakenly believe that driving a car is glamorous. Just last week on TV, a woman claimed that she knows how to drive a car, but doesn’t know how to back up a car. A driver like this will sooner or later hurt someone or himself/herself.
Having a car is like having a tiger.
Talk about being fucking stupid!
Women driving is unreliable/undependable [dangerous]! This is an ancient truth that will not change!
Crushed herself to death? So ridiculous.
Such a tragedy. Those who don’t know how to drive really should just not drive. :(
