Posted by TechRaptor on November 25, 2018 08:24:17 After a long day at work, a man’s life changed forever when he was killed by a car in front of his house in northern China.
The driver of the car, surnamed Zhou, was arrested and later charged with manslaughter.
Zhou was 38 years old, had a wife and three young children.
His family was shocked by the events that led to his death.
“It was a tragic accident,” his father said.
“He was an excellent worker and he had a good life.
But there was nothing he could do to prevent this.”
Zhou was the third person to die in a vehicle accident in the province of Anhui this year, after his father and his mother.
Zhou’s father said that Zhou was an ordinary worker who was employed at a restaurant, but he worked as a driver for a transportation company.
“My father said he was tired, and when he came home from work at 8:30 p.m. he could not sleep because he did not know if he would be able to sleep at night,” his mother, who asked that her surname not be used, told reporters.
Zhou had been in his house for about a month and was taking a break from working in his company’s office, when he accidentally struck the rear of a minivan.
His father said Zhou was a talented driver who enjoyed playing with his children, and that he was a good person who was in good health.
“We have to take our lives seriously, because we have a family to care for,” his parents said.
The accident was captured on CCTV, and Zhou’s family said that he had been driving at the time of the accident.
Zhou reportedly had his eyes open at the moment of the collision, but then his head hit the rear bumper of the minivan, causing him to lose consciousness.
Zhou and his wife and children were initially taken to a local hospital, but died a few hours later.
His mother said that her husband had a long history of accidents and injuries, and was working as a mechanic at a construction site when he lost control of his car and hit a tree.
Zhou died at the scene.
His driver’s license was also reportedly suspended, but his employer was able to pay for the family’s funeral.
