Nine seconds, two lives! Three pedestrians were hit at the start of the bus (Source: ~)

At about 8:30 on September 21, 2018, a 738 bus hit three passers-by when it started, resulting in 2 deaths and 1 injury. Because the accident happened at an early peak and in the busy section of the city center, it attracted wide attention as soon as it happened. In the middle of last month, the Peoples Court of Jingan District of Shanghai finally delivered the first instance judgment in this case. Behind the accident, our reporter also approached the families of the two victims exclusively. One negligence, only 9 seconds, but lost two fresh lives, let the three families into deep pain.

Wenwen writers are businessmen. Parents spend almost half of their time in factories outside the country. The responsibility of taking care of grandparents falls on Wenwens shoulders. From accompanying a doctor to dispensing medicines to arranging three meals a day, young writings are well-written. Her parents were out of town on the day of the incident. When they returned to Shanghai, they saw only a cold corpse.

Speaking of this, Wenwens father heaven sighed. A seven-foot man who stood tall and upright at ordinary times had to hold back the tears in his eyes.

After Wenwen Wenwen left, there was no laughter in the family, and the whole family was shrouded in desperate silence. The couple dare not talk about their daughter. In the dead of night, Wenwens mother often weeps silently. Only in the interview did she cry thoroughly, and after six months of holding back, she seemed to finally find the outlet of her emotions.

In this program, reporters are always cautious in their interviews, fearing that the families of the two victims will suffer second injury in the memory, but the attitude of the two families makes the reporters very touched. Knowing that they would suffer, they were willing to accept interviews painfully, just to let their two daughters leave, to ring the alarm bell for more people, and to let more people pay attention to bus safety.

On the other hand, Qian Mou, the driver who caused the accident, had a tough time. Half a year after the accident, she hardly dared to go out. As soon as she went out, she felt that someone had pointed her finger at her spine.

At the time of the accident, she was 55 years old and was hired to drive a bus after retirement. She had been on the bus for 20 years and had been on this route for more than four years. On the day of the accident, the motorcade happened to change its model, which was Qians first day driving a new model on the road.

According to the plan, the bus should arrive at the terminal of Nanjing West Road, Shaanxi North Road at 8:21. Qian Mou runs half a lap to the terminal of Qianan Road, and her morning shift ends. But because of the early peak congestion, Qian did not drive into the station until 8:30.

At this time, a 955 bus also stopped on the left side of 738. The passengers who got off and drove the bus staggered in front of Qian Mous 738 bus. At 8:33, Qian Mou returned to the drivers seat. She was afraid of rubbing against the 955 bus on the left. She looked at the mirror on the left side, but ignored the road condition in front of the bus. It wasnt long after the car started.

She herself did not expect that the accident would result in two deaths and one injury. She confessed to reporters that she had wanted to apologize to the two families, but had no courage. She said, I am also a parent, I have only one child, I can feel this mood ah...

On March 14, the case was heard openly in the Peoples Court of Jingan District of Shanghai. Qian Mou finally expressed his regret to the victimsfamilies for the first time in court.

In the first instance, the court decided that the defendant Qian Mou had committed the crime of causing traffic accidents and sentenced him to one years imprisonment. As for the 955 bus drivers who parked illegally at that time, the judicial organs decided not to pursue their criminal responsibility according to law.

According to the relevant laws and judicial interpretations, if a traffic accident causes one death or more serious injuries to three or more persons and bears all or the main responsibility for the accident, he shall be investigated for the relevant criminal responsibility according to the crime of traffic accident. In this case, the driver of No. 955 bus bears the secondary responsibility for the accident, so his behavior does not constitute the crime of causing traffic accidents. Reporters learned from the traffic police department that after the accident, the relevant bus companies have arranged supervisorson-site supervision at busy stations, and also strengthened the training and assessment of bus drivers. Buses are an important part of urban public safety. We sincerely hope that similar tragedies will not happen again. Source: Look at the responsible editor of news: Liu Yuxin_NBJS7825
