BYD Tang Lian hit several cars, the driver insisted that the brakes failed, and netizens questioned: The throttle is a brake!

(Observer Net News/Xu Wei) Xi’ an BYD Tang DM crashed into several cars, which eventually led to the continuous fermentation of one death and five injuries. Up to now, the cause of the accident is still under investigation, and the official has not made a formal explanation of the accident. However, on the evening of April 28th, a netizen with the id of "@zhou00001" in Weibo voiced this incident and claimed to be the owner of BYD Tang DM in this incident. In Weibo, this netizen restored the accident of that day.

According to it, at that time, when Zhou started the vehicle in the pure electric mode of the vehicle and switched from the P gear to the D gear, "the foot brake was not loose, and the vehicle began to rush forward quickly". Zhou said that the vehicle was out of control except for the steering wheel at that time, and continuous braking and gear shifting did not play a role.

According to the police report of Xi ‘an Traffic Police High-tech Brigade, at about 16: 55 on April 23, Zhou (female, 44 years old, with c1 driver’s license) drove a BYD Tang vehicle with Shaanxi AF brand from east to west along Wenxing Lane, and collided with a white Shaanxi A car and a Shaanxi AU taxi that were driving normally, and then collided with an electric car driven by Zhang Moumou, Sun Moumou and a two-wheeled motorcycle driven by Jiang Moumou, and then collided with four motor vehicles parked on the roadside.

By 21: 00 on the same day, the accident had caused one death and five injuries.

On the evening of April 28, Zhou, who claimed to be the female driver involved, published a long article entitled "BYD who can’t stop, don’t let blood and tears cast your growth path".

Zhou said in Weibo: "At about 5 pm on April 23, 2019, after meeting my friends in Wenxing Lane, Xi ‘an High-tech Zone, I drove BYD Tang DM alone to turn around and take my children home. The vehicle I started in pure electric mode just started to switch from P gear to D gear, and before the brakes were released, the vehicle began to rush forward quickly. The vehicle was out of control except the steering wheel, and it had no effect whether it was continuously braked or switched gears. At that time, there were vehicles and pedestrians on the roadside. I could only control the steering wheel as much as possible to keep the vehicle moving forward. I avoided the vehicles and pedestrians on the road and kept stepping on the brakes to try to restore the brakes. In this state, the vehicle flew for five or six hundred meters. After passing through a traffic light at an intersection, it collided with an opposite vehicle in the process of avoidance, which currently caused serious consequences including one death and five injuries. "

In addition, Zhou also explained that the vehicle was purchased on October 11, 2018, and the first insurance was made on April 16 before the incident. In addition, the floor mat was the original 4S mat when buying a car.

Zhou claimed to have been driving for 11 years and the driving mileage exceeded 100,000 kilometers. During this period, there was no traffic accident. Zhou told BYD.Put forward five questions.

1. Why can’t you slow down when you start, such as braking failure, fast moving, and repeatedly stepping on the brakes to change gears?

2. Why did the active braking function promoted by Tang DM fail at the same time?

3. Why did the main driver’s airbag fail to open after the collision, which injured my face and chest?

4. Why can’t the driver’s and passenger’s doors be opened after the collision? I can only climb out from the front windshield.

5. After the collision, the on-board system was automatically connected to the customer service. The customer service asked me if there was an accident, and I immediately gave feedback about the brake failure. Later, I climbed out of the car and called 4S, and the feedback brake failed. Why did BYD manufacturers delay to respond and contact us?

To this end, Observer.com contacted BYD for the first time, and the other party said that it was not convenient for the time being, and the cause of the accident was still under investigation.

At the end of Zhou’s article, she declared that all the above are true and willing to bear all the legal consequences of this article. At the same time, she also sent a supplementary statement about airbags: Regarding whether the driver’s airbag was opened, the co-pilot and side airbags were opened in my personal memory, and the main driver’s seat was not opened. I don’t rule out the possibility that I didn’t notice it when I climbed out of the front windshield because it was opened but deflated. I hope to have more live pictures or wait for the inspection report. If I didn’t find it, I would like to apologize. But the brake failure is a fact.

However, things quickly reversed.

On the evening of April 29th, BYD officially released a description of the traffic accident in Xi ‘an.

In response to the female car owner’s mention that "the airbag in the main driver’s seat was not opened", BYD responded in the explanation that according to the investigation of the on-site personnel, the airbag, airbag curtain and side airbag of the vehicle’s main and co-pilot all popped up.

At the same time, the explanation points out: first, the seat belt warning shows that the main driver is not wearing a seat belt. Secondly, according to the external video at the scene of the accident, the brake light of the vehicle was not lit during the collision, but it can be lit after the collision.

BYD said that it has cooperated with the police to extract relevant data information from the background of the accident vehicle and will fully cooperate with the traffic police to investigate and handle the matter. Before the final identification of the accident and the investigation results come out, BYD will preserve the corresponding evidence and reserve the right to pursue legal action against the publication and forwarding of false information and malicious reports about brands and models.

In this regard, some netizens questioned that perhaps the whole thing is that the female driver mistakenly used the throttle as a brake, and the driver did not know it.

At present, the car has been sent for testing. As for whether this matter is a driver’s operational error or a vehicle problem, it still needs to wait for further investigation.

  — — Focus on cross-strait relations

  [Implementing the "26 Measures" to Include Baseball in the 2020 Hangzhou Asian Games]

  Zhu Fenglian said that after the promulgation and implementation of the "26 measures", all localities and departments are stepping up efforts to put all measures in place. Fujian province has carried out pilot tests in some areas and has made some concrete progress. In addition, the mainland sports authorities have responded to the concerns of the sports community in Taiwan Province, and have promoted baseball to be included in the events of the 2020 Hangzhou Asian Games.

  [Talking about the death of Chen Mingzhong: His patriotic feelings deserve to be remembered by compatriots on both sides of the strait forever]

  Zhu Fenglian said that Mr. Chen Mingzhong, former consultant of Taiwan Province Mutual Aid Association for Political Victims and former president of Xia Chao Federation, died in Shanghai on November 21, 2019. The Taiwan Affairs Office of the Central Committee and the Taiwan Affairs Office would like to express their deep condolences. Mr. Chen Mingzhong is a loyal patriot, a shining example of Taiwan Province people’s anti-colonialism and anti-oppression, and an outstanding representative of Taiwan Province’s patriotic reunification camp. He devoted his whole life to the lofty cause of realizing the complete reunification of the motherland and the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. His patriotic feelings deserve to be remembered by compatriots on both sides of the strait forever.

  [Compatriots on both sides of the strait should seek peace, protect peace and share peace]

  A few days ago, South Korea’s Yu said that before the mainland gave up the use of force to solve the Taiwan Province issue, there were no conditions for the two sides to sign a peace agreement. Zhu Fenglian said that not promising to give up force and keeping the option of taking all necessary measures are aimed at foreign interference and a handful of "Taiwan independence" separatist forces and their separatist activities, and are by no means aimed at Taiwan Province compatriots. Compatriots on both sides of the strait want to seek peace, protect peace and share peace.

  [The mainland is the best choice for Taiwan compatriots and enterprises to invest in business]

  The mainland recently released the results of the fourth economic census. Although the number of investment enterprises in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao increased from 97,000 at the end of 2013 to 119,000, the proportion of all enterprises declined, from 1.2% to 0.6%. Zhu Fenglian said that the mainland was, is and will remain the best choice for Taiwan compatriots and enterprises to invest and start businesses. It is hoped that Taiwan enterprises from Taiwan can give full play to their own advantages, catch the express train to expand the domestic demand market in the mainland, and achieve greater development in the rapid development of integration into the mainland.

  [Taiwan cargo ship sank in Fujian waters and two bodies have been found]

  Zhu Fenglian pointed out that at 21: 50 on November 20, a cargo ship from Guangdong collided with the cargo ship "Li Salary" from Taiwan Province about 0.66 nautical mile south of Chuanshi Island in Minjiang Estuary, Fuzhou City, Fujian Province. Unfortunately, the "Li Salary" sank into the water, causing nine crew members on board to fall into the water. On the morning of the 21st, seven crew members were rescued and properly placed. Two Taiwan Province crew members are missing. The body of one of the crew members was found on the evening of 22nd, and another body was found this morning. The identity is still being confirmed.

  — — Reject the Democratic Progressive Party authorities

  [Tell the Democratic Progressive Party authorities to stop interfering in the situation in Hong Kong and stop political manipulation]

  On the 27th, Zhu Fenglian responded to questions about the situation in Hong Kong. She said that the Democratic Progressive Party authorities, relying on foreign self-respect, kept interfering in Hong Kong affairs to gain political self-interest, and their attempts would not succeed. We are telling the Democratic Progressive Party authorities to stop interfering in the situation in Hong Kong and stop political manipulation.

  [In response to Democratic Progressive Party authorities’ hype about "reverse osmosis law": creating "green terror"]

  Democratic Progressive Party’s legislature in Taiwan introduced the draft "Reverse Osmosis Law" to impose more restrictions on cross-strait exchanges. Zhu Fenglian pointed out that the Democratic Progressive Party authorities have constantly incited cross-strait confrontation and created cross-strait hostility by manipulating the so-called "agents of the Chinese Communist Party" to amend the law, which has met with strong opposition from all walks of life in Taiwan Province. The Democratic Progressive Party authorities’ attempt to seek election self-interest is impossible.

  【"A liar becomes a spy" is an absurd and full of loopholes.

  Regarding Wang Liqiang’s self-proclaimed "China spy", Zhu Fenglian said that this was an absurd and full of loopholes "script" concocted by anti-China forces. However, the Democratic Progressive Party authorities, tied together with fraudsters, have engaged in political manipulation wantonly, with the intention of creating the illusion of "the mainland intervening in the elections in Taiwan Province" and seeking illegitimate election interests.

  [Talk about 30 Taiwan compatriots serving in the mainland being sued by the Taiwan authorities: smashing Taiwan Province’s youth rice bowl]

  Thirty Taiwan compatriots filed an administrative lawsuit after being punished by the Taiwan Province authorities for serving as the assistant director of the mainland community, but all of them were rejected by the internal affairs department of Taiwan Province recently. The Democratic Progressive Party authorities also claimed that they would continue to investigate the so-called Taiwan Province people who illegally went to the mainland to hold relevant posts. Zhu Fenglian said that the Democratic Progressive Party authorities set up checkpoints everywhere, threatening and intimidating with so-called "violation of the law", and in doing so, they were actually smashing the rice bowls of young people in Taiwan Province.

  [Responding to Tsai Ing-Wen’s vigorous promotion of economic achievements during his tenure]

  Recently, Tsai Ing-Wen has vigorously publicized her economic achievements during her term of office, not only claiming that Taiwanese capital has returned to 700 billion yuan, but also saying that Taiwan Province’s economic growth rate is expected to reach the top of the "Four Little Dragons in Asia" this year. Zhu Fenglian said that it is not up to the Democratic Progressive Party authorities to decide where Taiwanese businessmen will invest and where they will lay out. Where the business environment is better and where it is more conducive to their long-term development, I believe that the vast number of Taiwanese businessmen and enterprises will make their own judgments and make wise choices.

  [Talking about the logo "China Taiwan Province" mobile phone was stopped by the Taiwan authorities: unpopular]

  Some Huawei mobile phones marked Taiwan Province as "Taiwan Province, China", and the Taiwan authorities forced telecom operators to stop selling these Huawei mobile phones. Zhu Fenglian said that the Democratic Progressive Party authorities’ practice of sabotaging normal cross-strait economic and trade exchanges for political purposes harms the common interests of compatriots on both sides of the strait and is unpopular.
