There was a fatal car accident in New Taipei City recently. A female rider was riding her bike home. When approaching the intersection, she suddenly and slowly cut to the left. As a result, the motorcycle rider behind was suspected of not having time to brake and collided with her. The vehicle behind was involved in the accident. It was too sudden to brake and ran over the female knight directly, resulting in the unfortunate death of the female knight and the injury of the motorcycle rider behind who did not have time to brake.
Among them, the motorcycle rider who collided with the female knight at the beginning continued to ride forward because he did not notice that photo background removing he had collided with the female knight, and did not stay at the scene. What kind of legal problems might such behavior pose? Negligence causing death? First of all, I mentioned the crime of negligence causing death in the Criminal Law, because the motorcycle rider did not intend to ram others, but collided because he did not notice the other party's cutting, resulting in the female rider falling and then being run over by the rear vehicle. In the end, the result of death is caused, and in this case, although the locomotive rider is not intentional, he is still negligent, resulting in the result of death, so it is very likely that there will be a case of negligence causing death to be considered. hit and run?
Then, the knight did not stay at the scene after colliding with others, but directly rode away. Such behavior is actually a hit-and-run accident. Originally, Article 185-4 of the "Criminal Law" stipulates that driving a vehicle or other powered means of transport causes others to cause damage. Death or injury, and escape, may be sentenced to imprisonment for not less than one year but not more than seven years. However, after being explained by the justice, it was deemed that it violated the principle of specificity and became invalid. In this way, wouldn't the hit-and-run become a legal act?
