The indictment said Hu Bin hit and killed Tan Zhuo while speeding on May 7.

Police said Hu, 20, was in a street race with his friends and was going between 84.1 and 101.2 kilometers per hour on Wen'er Road W. about 8pm when he ran into Tan. The street's speed limit is 50kph.

Hu agreed to pay 1.13 million yuan (US$165,580) compensation to Tan's family before the trial started.
