A female driver was killed after she lost control of her car and rammed into two buses at a crossroad in downtown Foshan, south China’s Guangdong Province early on Monday morning. According to the witnesses, the driver might have stepped on the accelerator by mistake and thus caused the tragedy, although as of yet there are no official reports. No passengers on the two buses were injured. Despite the high number of accidents, the incidence of deadly collisions has been falling even as the number of cars has increased. According to official statistics China has been able to dramatically lower the road traffic death rate from 9 per 100,000 people in 2002 to 5 per 100,000 in 2014, although this is still higher than many European countries, for instance the UK, which has 3 deaths per 100,000 people a year.
