A traffic accident occurred in an elementary school in Wuhan. A first-grade student was run over by a teacher born in the 90s. He was sent to the hospital and later confirmed dead. The driver who caused the accident was in his 20s and was the class teacher of the fourth-grade students. He has been taken away by the police for investigation. The parents cried and complained that the child was run over twice and questioned why the teacher didn’t get out of the car to check.
Yuehu Campus of Hongqiao Primary School, Manyang District, Wuhan City.
The incident happened on the 23rd. The student who was hit was studying at the Yuehu Campus of Hongqiao Primary School. He had lunch in the school and ended his lunch break at 1:45 pm. After 15 minutes of free activities, the first class would start at 2 pm. The child was hit nine minutes before the afternoon class started. The parents received a call from the class teacher at around 2 o’clock and rushed to the hospital to find out that the situation was serious, and the child died after rescue.
The car involved.
Hanyang District Education Bureau and school staff said that the driver and the child had no intersection, and belonged to different grades. On the morning of the 23rd, the teacher attended classes at school normally, ate at the school cafeteria at noon, and did not drink alcohol. He was going out to participate in a training event in the afternoon. When the incident happened, he drove the car from the underground garage to a location more than ten meters away from the school gate and stopped, waiting for another teacher to go with him.
The car involved.
The person in charge of the Education Bureau said that while the teacher was waiting, the child suddenly ran from behind to the front of the car and squatted down for about 2 minutes, not knowing whether it was tying shoelaces or what else. The teacher drove without seeing the child, and the car stopped after the two wheels on the left ran over the child.
The face of the child who was hit and killed by the teacher’s car was badly worn.
Ms. Yang, the mother of the child, said that the car ran over twice. The first time it knocked down the child, it was dragged for 5 meters, but the driver did not get out of the car to check, and then drove forward. All the tissues on the child’s right face were worn off, three places were swollen on the child’s head, and the back of the head was bleeding all the time. She questioned: “I dare to ask if he had checked the surroundings of the car normally before getting in the car, or if he hadn’t been run over a second time, would my child not have left me?”
Education Bureau staff understand the incident.
The school pointed out that the male teacher involved was in his 20s and had just joined the job for 3 or 4 years. He was a Chinese teacher and the head teacher of the fourth grade students. The school regrets this and will actively cooperate with the police investigation. “The exact reason and the speed of the car at that time are all subject to investigation by the police. The whole process was relatively clear in the surveillance, and the surveillance material was also copied and taken away by the police. Family members can check it at any time.” The school also stated that vehicles are not allowed to pass through the campus during school hours. .
During the communication, the school representative apologized to the family.
