A young woman was killed in a hit-and-run on Tuesday evening on Chaoyang Beilu, Chaoyang district, Beijing Emergency Medical Center (BEMC) confirmed via its Sina microblog Wednesday morning.

According to BEMC, when paramedics arrived, the victim's showed no signs of life. She had sustained fatal crush injuries to her head.

A doctor, surnamed Cai, who was on duty Tuesday night in BEMC's Chaoyang branch, said the victim was a woman in her 20s.

The manager of a hairdresser near the scene, surnamed Tang, called the emergency services on Tuesday night.

The manager told the Global Times Wednesday that she found the woman's body near a crossroad close to Huangquxi bus station on Chaoyang Beilu on her way home at about 9:40 pm.

"Her head was crushed with the brains and blood on the ground. There was a twisted bicycle nearby," she said.

"There were many cars that had stopped as they could not get past, but none of the drivers got out, and there was nobody around the victim," said Tang.

Tang said that she called the police and then went to a nearby mutton soup restaurant. The police arrived quite quickly.

"I was too frightened by the horrible sight and called my husband to come and take me home," she said.

She said that since no suspicious vehicles had halted near the body, she thought the driver involved might have escaped.
