Printer-friendly version

CHINA - A woman, who had just got her driving licence, reversed into her husband who was giving her instructions, killing him.

She then accidentally smashed her head against a wall during the manoeuvre. She died at the scene, reported the South China Morning Post.

This incident took place in an underground garage in China's eastern Zhejiang province on Tuesday.

The woman had attempted to back the vehicle into a parking space and accidentally crushed her husband against a wall. He had been next to the car, giving directions.

She had received her driving licence only five weeks earlier.

The couple have two daughters, Ningbo Evening News reported.

"(The woman) must have mistaken the accelerator pedal for the brake," commented one person on the Ningbo report, which has gone viral.
