A couple may have buried alive an elderly woman knocked down by their car, Chinese police say.
The 68-year-old’s body was found at a construction site and police believe she was alive when buried. A man and his girlfriend are being held.
A witness said that after the accident, the couple carried the woman into their car saying they would take her to a hospital.
Instead, they allegedly buried her to avoid responsibility for the accident.
The man reportedly said the woman had stopped breathing.
