With the sound of a hammer falling, a much-anticipated traffic accident that lasted more than a year finally came to an end. On November 6, 2020, the Criminal Division of the Intermediate People's Court of Shangqiu City, Henan Province announced: "Tan Mingming was sentenced to life imprisonment and deprivation of political rights for life." The other two defendants, Liu Songtao and Zhang Xiaoqu, were sentenced to three years in prison, suspended for three years.
There are not many special features of traffic accidents that can arouse public interest. The difference in this case lies in the many labels on the defendant, such photo background removing as luxury cars, rich second-generation, and arrogant and domineering. Many people will not remember the name Tan Mingming, but everyone must know the sensational case of Maserati hitting a BMW. I don't know if this is the tragedy of an era. We have been taught to put people first, but in this tragic traffic accident, the focus of our attention was not people but cars. According to the investigation by the Yongcheng Public Security Bureau of Henan Province, on the night of July 3, 2019, after Tan Mingming had dinner and drinks with his friends Liu Songtao and Zhang Xiaoqu, Tan Mingming drove a Maserati car and pulled Liu Songtao and Zhang Xiaoqu away.
