The noise of a harsh brake came.
On the highway, the car stopped abruptly, with two tire traces left on the road. The driver ran out of the car in horror; his face was pale.
Fortunately, he managed to make an emergency brake, and the car behind him did the same. Therefore, there was no accident on the highway.
Of course, the drivers who were forced to stop started complaining and cursing.
But the first driver didn’t care about being scolded. Instead, he hurried to the front of his car and looked at the man who fell in front of his car.
There was a bus stop next to the incident. Hence, many onlookers were around. When a person fell in front of the car, the driver looked flustered. Soon, the crowd realized something.
The driver hurriedly explained, “I didn’t hit this person! He suddenly fell to the ground! I didn’t! I stopped!”
But the victim didn’t wake up. The driver was worried and couldn’t care less. He quickly helped the man who fell on the ground and shook him vigorously, but the man was totally unconscious.
He doesn’t look like a scammer. The driver gritted his teeth and quickly took out his phone. At this time, he could only choose to call the police and call an ambulance for help.
The ambulance arrived faster than the traffic police. The suspected driver quickly explained the situation to the medical staff. After the medical staff in the ambulance confirmed that the man was in a coma, the driver became more anxious.
The driver clearly didn’t hit the victim, but the victim fell to the ground. The driver was afraid that the victim was scared to death. In that case, he couldn’t justify and explain for himself.
Later, the traffic police arrived and hurriedly investigated the situation. After assessing the nearby surveillance cameras, the traffic police finally confirmed that the driver did not lie. The victim was sent to the hospital for emergency treatment. As for the results, the traffic police was still waiting for the doctor’s diagnosis before they could conclude.
“Police officer, I didn’t hurt this person. Please believe me!” The driver was pale, and now he came to the hospital with the group.
“You didn’t hit the victim, but are you not speeding too?” The traffic police stared at the driver, “This is the hospital. Please be quiet! Let’s wait for the doctors to get the result!”
While the unlucky driver waited nervously, the doctor in the emergency room finally came out, “Police officer, this gentleman did not have any bruises on his body. The reason why he suddenly fainted was because of the wound infection. Yes, he passed out because of tetanus.”
“Tetanus?” The traffic police officer was taken aback.
The doctor frowned, nodded, and said, “For the person inside, his ear was cut off cruelly for some unknown reason. But after the cut, the wound was not treated properly. Now he is infected with tetanus. If he weren’t delivered in time, I am afraid that no one could save him.”
“His ear is cut off…” The traffic police furrowed his brows after listening. He was guessing under what circumstances would one of the ears be cut off.
Was it revenge, or was it because of other things? However, a cruel method like cutting off the ear was something only some lunatics would do. The traffic police knew that this matter was beyond the scope of his duties and simply reported it to the appropriate departments directly.
But the driver didn’t care about this. He was afraid that something might happen to this man, “Doctor, can the people in there recover?”
“The patient was delivered in time. We managed to save his life.” The doctor sighed. Obviously, the rescue was quite urgent. Hence, his nerves were tense. “Well, let’s see if we can contact his family. Let’s go through the admission procedures for him first.”
The driver thought for a while and knew some of the hospital’s rules and accommodating aspects. At this time, the driver was afraid that the victim would be delayed in treatment. If something happened one day later, the victim’s family would pursue him, which would be endless trouble.
The driver gritted his teeth and said, “Let’s do this? I’m going to help him go through the hospitalization procedure. Traffic police officer, since you witnessed the event, why don’t you also help?”
“Okay… fine.” The traffic policeman thought for a moment and nodded in agreement.
They found a wallet from the patient’s belongings, which had the person’s ID: Liu Zixing.
When everything was done, the driver sat down, exhausted. He called his relatives, “Oh… I don’t want it to happen too! I don’t know if it was the guy being unlucky or me. Don’t run around if you’re already hurt! It’s tetanus, and he almost died. He even put me in a tight spot. I don’t want to talk about it. The traffic police officer is here. Traffic police officer, how is it? Have you contacted his family?”
The traffic police officer was puzzled but annoyed simultaneously, “I found the family members, but they didn’t want to come. When they heard that his life was no longer in danger, they ignored it. Instead, they had someone send some money over for the treatment. They even lamented that they were already very kind. I have never encountered such an irresponsible mother before!”
“Then, what should I do?” said the driver hurriedly.
“En, maybe you should go back first. I think it should be fine. I have written an oral confession. You keep your phone online these days and make sure that we can find you.” The traffic police thought for a while and felt that it wasn’t entirely the driver’s fault. There was no point in keeping him here.
The driver thought for a while and felt that it was still not safe. So, he gritted his teeth and said, “I have a suggestion. I am here waiting for him to wake up! Just in case his family will hold me accountable in the future. This is hard to say for certain! At least, I want to make it clear in person when the victim wakes up. It is his problem, not because I bumped into him, nor did I scare him into any complications!”
“Alright.” The traffic police agreed.
The traffic police officer reported the matter to the police station. He intended to transfer it to the police station. But all the police in the city were mobilized, being put to work overtime temporarily to catch a dangerous assailant.
He was notified that even the traffic police department was mobilized.
“I have something to do. If this person wakes up, you can let me know. This is my contact information.” The traffic police wrote a phone number, “I have deposited the money the victim’s family sent over for hospital treatment. Please rest assured.”
The driver nodded, only to admit that he was unlucky.
After the traffic police left, the driver bought something to eat and then stayed in front of Liu Zixing’s bed. He wanted to be alerted as soon as the victim woke up.
The driver looked at Liu Zixing in a coma, then glanced at the bandaged area on the ear, frowning. Liu Zixing’s skin was smooth, and he didn’t look like a labor worker. How could he get into such a situation?
Thinking about it, the driver sat on the folding chair, slowly getting sleepy, and shut his eyes.
