Woman hit by BMW dies in local hospital

A WOMAN knocked down by a sedan in the city three weeks ago died in hospital on Thursday.

Relatives are preparing for her funeral before seeking compensation, the victim's sister said yesterday.

The woman, surnamed Jiang, was hit by a silver BMW on May 14 when crossing the junction of Huaihai Road M. and Shaanxi Road S.

The driver, a man in his 20s, is a student at a Shanghai university and was driving his mother's car, his father told Jiang's relatives.

The driver's relatives had visited the victim in hospital several times and paid her medical expenses, Jiang's sister said.

Witnesses said the car had changed lanes when the light turned from red to yellow and passed a bus before it struck Jiang. The force of the impact knocked her 2 meters into the air, according to passers-by.

Jiang, who was in her 50s and had a 22-year-old son, had been in a coma since she was sent to hospital.

Police said their investigations were ongoing.
