Drunken driver tried in 3 deaths

THE man who caused three horrific deaths in a drunk-driving crash in the Pudong New Area on February 11 went to trial yesterday at the Shanghai No.1 Intermediate People's Court.

The suspect, Huang Shihua, 46, had been charged with murder but his charge was changed yesterday to dangerous driving, also a very serious charge.

Huang was driving along Chuanzhan Road near Nanliu Road when his car rear-ended a taxi, but he fled. The taxi driver, surnamed Shen, chased him to an intersection where he was forced to stop at a light.

Prosecutors said Shen got out of his taxi but the drunken driver stepped on the gas and hit Shen.

Huang sped up while Shen clung to the engine hood. He was crushed to death when Huang's car bumped into a Chery QQ, which rear-ended a Kia.

The Chery QQ blew up when its fuel tank burst and flames soon engulfed the car, which burned the two occupants to death, the court heard.
