SHENZHEN, Guangdong - The truck driver whose vehicle ran over a woman three times before killing her has been put in criminal detention, local police confirmed to China Daily on Monday.

Many have raised doubts as to whether this was a mere accident or an intentional killing, as the victim was rolled over back and forth three times, as witnesses claimed and video footage showed.

The victim, a woman, about 20 years old, was run over by a truck moving in reverse gear, as she was sipping from a bottle of soft drink, standing at the gate of Zhifu Community in Luohu district in Shenzhen on Saturday morning.

After he had hit the woman the first time, the truck driver didn't stop but drove forward for a bit and came back to hit the woman twice more.

The whole process was recorded by the surveillance video system.

The woman died on the spot, having been run over three times, police said.
