The man was sleeping in the shade of a tree, but he was crushed to death by a car. On June 13, a reporter from the Beijing Youth Daily learned that the Shunyi court sentenced the perpetrator, Yang Mou, to one years probation for the crime of negligent death.
At 10 oclock on August 31, 2018, in the courtyard of a building material distribution center in Shunyi District, Beijing, Yang Mou failed to pay attention to his duty while driving a black Audi car, crushing Qi Mou, a man sleeping in the courtyard, and causing his death. After identification, Qi Mou accorded with the death of traumatic hemorrhagic shock. Yang took the initiative to call the police and waited at the scene. His family members have compensated the victimsrelatives for their economic losses and obtained understanding.
Yang confessed in front of the court that on the day of the incident, he rented scaffolding in a courtyard of Beishigou Village, Shunyi District. When driving into the courtyard, Qi Mou was lying under a tree on the side of the road. Qimou saw a car passing by and stood up to give way. After Yang Mou returned to the original road, turning did not notice Qi Mou was still lying under the tree. At this time, someone shouted to run over, and he quickly stopped and saw a man lying behind the car, still breathing at that time. After the ambulance arrived at the scene, the first aid doctor confirmed the death of the person.
During the trial, Yang Mou believed that the location of the case belonged to the road and should constitute the crime of causing traffic accidents.
The Shunyi Court, after hearing, held that because the scene of the case had courtyard walls and gates, no road signs and markings in the courtyard, it was the business place of the leasing company. The vehicles entering the courtyard were all vehicles with the unit, so the place did not have the characteristics of openness and publicity of public transport roads. This case did not meet the constitutive requirements of the crime of causing traffic accidents. One person died due to Yangs negligence. Death should be prosecuted for the crime of negligent death. In view of the circumstances of surrender, confession of guilt and repentance, actively compensate the victimsrelatives for economic losses and obtain the understanding of the other side, Yang was given a lighter punishment and declared a suspended sentence.
Therefore, the court sentenced Yang Mou to one year suspended sentence for the crime of negligent death.
