At 9:30 a.m. yesterday, the Peoples Court of West Lake District of Hangzhou opened a public hearing to hear the case. Chen Momou, a female driver, was charged with traffic accident. Why did Chen Mou-mous car suddenly run so fast? Was it really the throttle that braked? How about her compensation for the victims? Did she get the victims understanding? In more than two hours of court trial, these questions were finally clearly answered.
What happened on the bus at that time?
There was no quarrel at the time of the incident.
She panicked when she hit the central partition of the road around the corner.
Chen Mou-mou, the driver of the accident, appeared in court wearing a waist support device. The accident also caused serious injuries to her.
Chen Momou, 65 years old, is a retired cadre of a provincial office. On the day of the accident, she and her ex-husband finished looking at the decoration materials from the New Age Home Square and drove home. Before the accident, the ex-husband sitting in the co-drivers seat had just made a phone call with the nanny: Come back for dinner, it will be there soon.
On the way, according to Chen Mou-mou, they did not speak or argue. The prosecutor also presents evidence at the stage of proof, including testimony from multiple witnesses: Chen Mou-mou and his ex-husband have a good relationship, and Chen Mou-mou has always taken care of his ex-husband.
At 7 oclock that evening, before Chen Mou-mous SUV turned left into the race boat road, she turned left in the first lane and waited for the red light, in the first parking space. When turning left, because the turning range is too small, when turning left, the wheel bumps into the flange stone of the central isolation belt. Very loud, there are two. Chen Moumou did not notice the margin stone, but she felt and heard her front and rear wheels passing through the margin stone, and then a little panicked.
At that time, Chen Mou-mou was wearing slippers, and she began to step on the brakes. But she found it useless to tread on it, and the speed was getting faster and faster. In the process, the ex-husband of the copilot also helped her steer away from the pedestrians. Chen did not realize that he had stepped on the throttle as a brake.
Chen Mou-mou shouted Its over, I cant stop... She said her mind was blank. By the time she regained consciousness, the car had turned over and the skylight had broken. She climbed out of the skylight and said to the passers-by, Alarm.
Pedestrians on the roadside were confused. They watched the SUV go faster and faster, as it crashed into the sunshade, and then into other vehicles...
All this happened in just ten seconds.
What is the root cause of the accident?
The soles of slippers are embedded with deep throttle pedals
Monitor shows that the brake lights are not on
From yesterdays trial, we can feel that the case was handled very meticulously. Several appraisal organizations were invited to the single appraisal. This case has been identified from alcohol driving, poisonous driving, psychiatric identification, as well as injuries, including traces of car accidents and other aspects.
The result excludes the situation of drunk driving and poisonous driving of Chen Mou-mou, and also confirms that Chen Mou-mou has full criminal responsibility at the time of the accident.
In court, the prosecutor showed several identification pictures: Chen Mou-mous slipper sole was embedded with deep lines. The pattern coincides with the throttle pedal and does not coincide with the brake pedal.
Vehicle identification found that the brake lights were normal. Through monitoring, it was found that the SUV brake lights were not on at the time of the accident.
To sum up, in the course of the accident, Chen Mou-mou stepped on the throttle, not the brake. When the throttle is on the brake, personal misoperation is the root cause of the accident.
After the accident, the relevant departments also identified the speed of the vehicle: the vehicle was gradually accelerating, the highest speed was 132 kilometers per hour.
What penalties will be faced
Public prosecutors recommend sentencing for more than three years and less than seven years
Chen Mou-mou and Victims reach a compensation agreement
During the trial, both the public prosecutor and Chens defense lawyer mentioned that Chen actively compensated after the incident. It is reported that in order to compensate, Chen sold his sons house and borrowed money from friends. In the court, the public prosecutor read a compensation agreement signed by Chen Mou-mou and the family members of the deceased, with a total compensation of more than 1.06 million yuan. According to insiders, personal injury compensation plus property damage compensation, the total amount of compensation for Chen Mou-mou more than ten million yuan.
When the public prosecutor expressed his opinion in court, he said that the root cause of the accident was the misoperation of someone Chen. After the accident, the vehicle runs out of control, acceleration and continuous impact, but there is no man-made and selective collision, so it does not have subjective malignancy.
According to the serious consequences of the accident, Chen Mou-mous behavior has belonged to other particularly bad circumstances in the traffic accident crime. In addition to the division of responsibilities of the traffic police department, the procuratorial organ suggests that he be sentenced to not less than three years but not more than seven years.
Defender said: Chen Moumou got his drivers license in 2000 and has not been punished by traffic so far. Considering that she was 65 years old, two steel plates were removed after the operation, and she pleaded guilty and pleaded guilty to a suspended sentence.
In response, the prosecutor responded that although Chen Mou-mou had a small malignancy, the consequences were extremely serious and the trauma was great, so the suspended sentence was not applicable.
What did the perpetrator say in the trial
If you can choose
Id rather die that day.
During the trial, Chen Mou-mou had two opportunities to speak. She could have defended herself, but she cried and said:
I dont have the face to see everyone. If I could choose, I would rather die on that day than suffer from the torment of my heart.
It was the darkest day of my 65-year-old life.
After the accident, I lay in bed and couldnt move. I kept crying.
I thought about giving up treatment. During the operation, I received a letter from the victims family: After the accident, we have been immersed in grief. Your sons positive attitude gives us some comfort. The accident has happened, and I hope you will recover soon.
There was no complaint in the letter. Their generosity gave me the confidence to go on again.
Please allow me to make a deep bow to the families of all the victims.
At 11:30 p.m., when the trial was over, the judge announced that he would adjudicate the day he chose.
When tragedy brews
Think about that if too late
Driving in slippers leads to a decline in driving response; turning left is not carried out on the left side of the central point, which leads to the vehicle riding on the road separation edge, causing emotional panic and the starting point of subsequent series of tragedies; in the process of accelerating the vehicle by mistaking the throttle as a brake, Chen can actually use hand brake to brake, but Chen never thought of returning it. There is this way. One mistake after another eventually brought great pain to five families, and Chen himself appeared in the dock. Its only ten seconds. When the steps of tragedy are broken down one by one, the scene is familiar: driving out in flip-flops and high-heeled shoes, passing the idea of not wanting to change; in the car, often answering the phone, brushing a micro-message, tuning a favorite channel, and dressing up in the mirror. Thats ten seconds. The prosecutor had a good saying: We tried too many of these ten seconds and were safe, but its too late to think about that if there was such a major accident.
