Moped rider killed by angry bus driver

A BUS driver, incensed at his boss, ran over a young moped rider, and dragged the man for 5 kilometers yesterday through Nanjing city in Jiangsu Province.

The driver, Wang Jianqiang, 50, was eventually stopped when taxis and cars blocked his path, today's Nanjing-based Modern Express reported.
After he brought his bus to stop Wang got out and walked to a roadside security office, telling the officers he had killed a person and asking them to handcuff him.

The victim's body had been crushed and decapitated.
Wang had taken the No. 114 bus without permission and there were no passengers aboard.

Wang, who had been driving buses for the city's Zhongbei bus company for 10 years, told police he was in a blind rage and intended to kill someone.

He said his boss had put pressure on him and that he did not want to continue living.

A passenger had complained to Wang's boss a few days before that he had been hurt when Wang accidentally closed the doors on him. His boss had reprimanded him and threatened him with further discipline if there were any more complaints.

The police are continuing their investigation.
