Chinese Woman's Attempt To Fake Her Road Accident For Money Gets Ruined By CCTV Footage
Earlier this month, a woman from south-east China claimed she was seriously injured after being knocked off her bicycle by a truck
The alleged accident happened on 4 July in Wuhu, Anhui province.
According to a South China Morning Post (SCMP) report published on 10 July, the woman claimed that she was hit by the truck while she was on her bicycle.
Following which, she called the police as she lay under the truck. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the woman "moaning in pain" and demanding compensation from the truck driver, who was identified only as Cui, SCMP reported.
There was, however, only one issue with her claim
She wasn't hit by the truck instead she staged being knocked off her bicycle by throwing it under the truck before positioning herself in front of the truck's tyres.
The woman would have gotten away with the whole thing had it not been caught on the surveillance camera installed across the street.
When police officers reviewed the footage from the surveillance camera it became clear she had faked the whole incident
The woman apparently staged the accident after having a business dispute with the driver and sought revenge, according to People’s Daily.
While police said they are investigating the woman, it is unclear if she would be facing any punishment for her actions.
