Around 7am on Friday, November 29, a male driver in Guangzhou collided with a bike carrying three riders along with two nearby pedestrians, killing three and injuring two.

Huadu’s Public Security Bureau released a statement on Weibo following the incident, stating that the driver was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs while operating the vehicle. The driver, surnamed Gao, was said to be driving while fatigued, which led to the collision.
