15:00, March 08, 2012

BEIJING, March 8 (Xinhua) -- A man has been detained on suspicion of intentionally killing another with his car last Sunday during a traffic dispute in Beijing, police confirmed Thursday.

The death occurred at a crossing in Tiancun village, Haidian District, Sunday morning after the victim, surnamed Sun, and his wife had a dispute with a car driver. The couple alleged that the driver's car had scratched them, according to a witness.

The driver's husband surnamed Xu, who was following his wife in a separate vehicle, became involved in the dispute.

"The dispute did not last long but it attracted dozens of onlookers," the witness said.

The angry Xu drove his car into to Sun, crushing him to death after Sun had uttered provocative words while standing in front of Xu's vehicle, witnesses said.

The 26-year-old Xu who comes from the city of Baoding in north China's Hebei Province, has been detained for further questioning, the police confirmed.
