A driver in southern China has been accused of murdering a nine-year-old girl he hit with his car to avoid paying compensation, according to local media reports.

A father was horrified to find his young daughter suddenly missing from her village in Hubei province, China.

He reported the matter to the police, who quickly went out in search of the young girl. Unfortunately, police officers found her lifeless body in a bush near her home.

An eyewitness to the incident came forward during the investigation

Telling the grieving father that he saw a man putting a girl in his car and driving off somewhere one afternoon. The witness also provided information about the car’s type and where it was registered since car license plates begin with the province and city code in China.

The police arrested the suspect in question.

The accused surnamed He, claimed he accidentally hit the 9-year-old girl with his car while driving through the village, and because he did not want pay for the high medical bills, he reportedly took the girl to a nearby farmland, murdered her and dumped her body.
