Car fells a tree and a walker but no loss of life

A speeding Buick car knocked down a roadside tree and a pedestrian this morning in Pudong New Area, keeping the victim under the wheel for nearly 30 minutes before he was rescued, local police said.

The 21-year-old man surnamed Wu was trapped under the car at Luoshan Road at about 8:10am and some passers-by made a failed attempt to pull him out.

After someone called the emergency number, firefighters came a few minutes later, extracted the wounded man from the car and sent him to the Shanghai East Hospital in Lujiazui.

"The Buick was making a fast turn around the corner and lost control," one witness said.

Doctors said Wu only suffered minor injuries in his legs and waist.
