Shenzhen, China- On the evening of February 2, a Chinese Singaporean driving a cross-country vehicle collided with a man on bicycle in Longgang district in Shenzhen and then ran away after finding the man dead on site. The driver who was suspected of causing traffic accident was put on trial at Shenzhen Intermediate People’s Court yesterday, on which he acknowledged his guilty.
The 44-year-old Chinese Singaporean YONG FUI SHIUNG (Chinese name Yang Feixiong) was charged of drunk driving and causing a man, surnamed Zhuang, dead with his cross-country vehicle borrowed from his friends. After the accident, Yang ran away from the accidental scene.
At about 23:30 on the same night, Yang Feixiong went to the traffic police branch in Longgang district and surrendered himself to the police. Through investigation, the traffic police cognized that Yang Feixiong, who had driven after drinking and run away after causing traffic accident, should assume all responsibilities of the accident.

Before appear on the court, Yang had reached understanding agreement with the families of the victim that he would make some compensation payment. And Zhuang’s families have submitted understanding letter to the court, hoping that Yang could be lightly sentenced or be free of criminal liabilities.
