To Avoid High Medical Bills Chinese Driver Killed 9-Year-Old Girl After Hitting Her

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.

In China, security camera footage across multiple years shows drivers accidentally striking passersby.

Realizing their error, and subsequently rolling back over the injured pedestrians to make sure they're dead.

Why?

In China the compensation for killing a victim in a traffic accident is relatively small—amounts typically range from $30,000 to $50,000—and once payment is made, the matter is over.

By contrast, paying for lifetime care for a disabled survivor can run into the millions.

Killing the victim right away, in other words, avoids years of potentially crippling debt.

In 2010 in Xinyi, video captured a wealthy young man reversing his BMW X6 out of a parking spot.

He hits a 3-year-old boy, knocking the child to the ground and rolling over his skull.

In 2013, onlookers attacked a man who killed a 6-year-old with his car.

News reports argued the crowd had misinformation, although numerous bystanders all agreed the man was at fault. These drivers are willing to kill not only because it is cheaper, but also because they expect to escape murder charges.
