Van Crash Outside Shanghai Starbucks Injures at Least 18

 

A van slammed into pedestrians on a sidewalk outside a Starbucks in Shanghai on Friday, injuring at least 18 people, the Chinese state news media reported.

 

The crash occurred just before 9 a.m. on Nanjing Road West, near People’s Park in the heart of the city, according to the state-run Central China Television. Eighteen people were taken to the hospital, including three who were seriously injured, it said.

A witness told a reporter from The Paper, a local news outlet, that the van was carrying fuel canisters. The fire was extinguished quickly, The Paper reported, and it did not appear that any of the canisters exploded.

Van ploughs into pedestrians causing chaos in Shanghai, China

A VAN has driven onto a crowded pavement and ploughed into pedestrians in a busy area of central Shanghai, leaving many injured.

 

Unconfirmed video clips circulating on Chinese social media showed several people sprawled on the pavement and receiving medical treatment from fire and rescue personnel at the scene, located at People’s Park in the heart of the city.

Other images that circulated on state-run social media platforms showed a fire burning inside the van, which had come to stop after apparently striking some fencing near the entrance to the Starbucks.

Videos on social media showed people lying unconscious on the pavement next to a Starbucks cafe and firefighters trying to extinguish a blaze inside the van.

AFP journalists who arrived at the scene in the wake of the accident found the area had been quickly cleared by authorities. A small police presence was standing watch and damage to the fencing could be seen.

The crash comes as British Prime Minister Theresa May is scheduled to speak in Shanghai.

I think need to wait for confirmation on terrorist attacks. But local news are usually very reserved and conservative one. In the past Turkistan movement has made claims for similar attacks.

 

These photos can see many gas tanks taken out from the van by firemen.

I am very disturbed, not just by the incident, which hurt many innocent people on the street, but the IRRESPONSIBLE Behavior of those crowding around the burning van, taking photos and/or videos. [furious]  A burning vehicle pose a very high risk of exploding, especially when it is carrying highly explosive, flammable and/or combustible material. [speechless]

 

For your own safety, please keep at least 10 - 30m away from a large burning object, and let the professional handle the fire. Even if you are trained to perform fire fighting using extinguisher or hose reel, you might not be properly equip with suitable PPE - Personal Protective Equipment, to protect yourself from the heat and flying debris.  [dead]  [dead]

 

OK, back to this case, the van don't look like those used for delivering cooking gas, so likely the driver have some agenda. Hope the victim have a speedy recovery, and can be back home with their family in time for CNY.  [grouphug]

Must salute the fire fighters. So many gas tanks if all of them kaboom, the PPE also cannot completely help I think,

As expected. Info provided to media just don't gel too...

A Shanghai police statement said the incident has been ruled a "traffic accident", saying it occurred when flammable materials inside the car burst into flames, causing the van's 40-year-old driver to lose control of the vehicle.

It said the driver, who was seriously injured, had been smoking a cigarette and using his phone while driving the van, which contained seven gas tanks used to fuel stoves and three plastic bottles filled with petrol.

The incident occurred at People's Park in the heart of the Chinese financial hub during morning rush hour, when crowds of people were on their way to work.

AFP journalists who arrived at the site found it had been quickly cleared by authorities.

Nine people were still in hospital as of Friday evening, including the driver, who worked for a local metals company, the police statement said.

Seems like any normal driver reaction would be to brake. stop the van and just escape from the fire in the vehicle right.

Even if I'm on fire myself, my instinct would be to get out of the vehicle and drop and roll.

 

Nope, instead i will drive the van onto the sidewalk trying to kill people while not bothering to save myself.
