E-biker knocked down by car door, dies
    2018-07-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AN e-bike rider has died from head injuries sustained when he was knocked to the ground from his e-bike by a car door that was opened in Longgang District on Thursday.

The e-biker, identified as Chen, was riding on Jianshe Road in Longcheng Subdistrict on Thursday morning when he was knocked down by a motorist who opened the door of a car parked on the roadside, according to the traffic police authority.

Chen wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and he injured his head when he fell off his bike and hit the road.

Chen was immediately taken to a nearby hospital but the doctors’ efforts to save him failed. Chen died in the wee hours of Friday. Chen would have survived the accident if he had worn a helmet, said a traffic police officer, who wasn’t named in the Chinese-language media reports.

Traffic police said the motorist, identified as Fan, didn’t look back to make sure no people or vehicles were coming from behind before she opened the car door. “If Fan had looked she would have waited for Chen to pass before opening the door,” said the officer.

The officer reminded motorists to adopt the “Dutch Reach” when opening car doors after parking their vehicles.

The Dutch Reach is when drivers and passengers use their far hand to grab the door handle to open the car door. By using the far hand, drivers and passengers are forced to swivel, and they will automatically look at the mirror to check for traffic coming from behind.

Police are investigating.
