Bus Reportedly Kills Police Officer In Beijing After Rolling Over His Car [UPDATE]

UPDATE, 6/10, 7:57 am: A short video of the aftermath has surfaced, embedded at the bottom. UPDATE, 6/12, 12:45 pm: See here.

This goes a little beyond your everyday fender bender. At 1:55 pm today at Changhong Bridge on East Third Ring Road, not far from the popular bar district Sanlitun, a Shouqi bus rear-ended (the hell out of) a police car, bending it in ways cars (or anything) are not meant to bend.

BJC contributor Alicia translates a Sina Weibo post that claims “at least one person has been confirmed dead.”

The person was wearing a police uniform. No one on the Shouqi bus or the Beijing Transportation Bus was hurt.

More pictures after the jump. Updates as they become available. UPDATE, 6/9, 11;45 pm: It appears several posts on Sina Weibo regarding this accident have been censored; looks like we’ll be learning less about this than more anytime soon.

From Sina:

    Looks like the police car got sandwiched between the two buses. But, still…I want to know what car brand that is so I can never get in that type of car. Definition of a tin can.
