Horrible and horrible, this story from Global Times, citing a report from Qianjiang Evening News, taking place in Ningbo, Zhejiang province on June 18. We hesitate to begin…
41-year-old driver surnamed Lin, who was issued a driver’s license in May, was practicing backing up her Lexus RX270 SUV into a parking space as her husband directed from behind, when she backed up too far and pinned him against the wall.
Lin stuck her head out the window upon hearing her husband’s scream, and accelerated in an attempt to move forward.
I don’t like where this is headed.
She however forgot to change gears from reverse to drive, which not only killed him instantly but caused her head to get stuck between the car and a wall along the parking space.
The couple’s 6-year-old daughter saw the entire tragedy unfold from inside the car.
C’est… la vie?
Lin had successfully parked in the space once before that day, but her husband asked her to do it again because she needed the practice.
No more words.
