When a taxi refused to stop for a vehicle inspection in Qufu, Shandong, 2 law enforcement vehicles began to follow it and asked the driver to stop over the PA. When the driver ignored the commands, the two police vehicles violated the rules and attempted to surround the speeding driver and force him to a stop. He instead swerved into oncoming traffic and began to drive faster. After running a red light, the taxi slammed into a sedan, killing 6 and injuring 2. Netizens suspected that the police involved were trying to earn money by finding a reason to fine the taxi driver.
