    http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/uk...6908-21265014/

    Student hit by corpse thrown from speeding car

    Apr 9 2009

    A cyclist was knocked out after being hit by a corpse thrown from a speeding car.
    Student Wu Dan, 16, was riding home when the incident happened.

    His uncle Yun Tsui said: "A car passed and a package came flying out the door. It had a dead woman inside. My nephew was very upset."

    Police believe she was the victim of a car accident and was being dumped by the driver who had hit her in Dongyang, eastern China.

    CB, the helmet thread a little too slow for you lately? The chances of me being hit by a flying dead body while riding my bike are a little slim.

    I'll bet that the corpse wasn't wearing a helmet.

    Good job on the thread title closetbiker. %100 factual while deliberately leading readers to believe the motor vehicle occupant was killed by a crash with a bike. I'm impressed!

    No, no. It happens a lot more than you would expect.


    I mean, I never expected it would happen and look, it's already happened once.

    You know how to tell a happy bicyclist from a unhappy one, happy ones have bugs in their teeth.

    I suprised they even tried to dump the poor victom of the hit and run, since China has like 10x more MV fatalities than in the US!

    Impossible. MV fatalities are strictly a western imperialist phenomenon... along with AIDS and other symptoms of western moral decay.

    None of those things exist in the PRC.
