Com­pen­sa­tion asked for lorry death


Fam­ily mem­bers of a lorry driver, sur­named Xu, who was killed in an ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing his own ve­hi­cle, have taken an in­sur­ance com­pany to court in Xi­a­men city, ask­ing for 1.18 mil­lion yuan ($176,860) in com­pen­sa­tion. Xu, 29, was the fa­ther of twins. While Xu was trans­port­ing earth from a con­struc­tion site in April last year, he got out of his lorry to see why his ve­hi­cle was un­able to climb a slope. But when the lorry slid backward, Xu was knocked down and killed. The in­sur­ance com­pany said Xu was re­spon­si­ble for his death be­cause he was knocked down and killed by his own ve­hi­cle.
