Teenager killed in e-bike accident

SHENZHEN traffic police called for students to obey traffic rules and pay attention to traffic safety during the summer holiday.

This remark was made after a tragic traffic accident that took the life of a 15-year old girl surnamed He, and left three others injured, in Shiyan Subdistrict, Bao’an District on Friday.

Early Friday morning, a teenager surnamed Chen, 14, was driving an e-bike at a fast speed with three passengers along Baoshi Road in Shiyan Subdistrict. Along the way, the e-bike made contact with the curb, and the four fell off the bike. Chen and two others, aged 13 and 17, were injured, while He later died at the hospital.

A 22-second video clip showed Chen was initially driving the e-bike in the middle lane at a fast speed. Chen later changed to the right lane. Along the way, his e-bike hit the curb sending sparks into the air as the accident happened.

The police investigation found the e-bike failed to meet the technology standard and wasn’t allowed on the road. It was also overloaded, with four people on it. Chen should bear full responsibility for the accident. According to relevant rules, teenagers under the age of 16 are not allowed to drive e-bikes, because they aren’t physically or mentally capable of handling emergencies.

Not wearing a helmet was another factor in the fatality, according to Chen Jianmin, a traffic police officer.

Between January and April this year, Shenzhen reported 136 e-bike-related accidents that killed 35 people, accounting for 38 percent of the total fatal accidents.

Among the 35 deaths, 27 people died of brain damage.
