Didi Under Fire After Carpool Killing
China’s ride-sharing leader Didi Chuxing is under intense public scrutiny over the safety of its car-pooling service after a driver allegedly killed a woman during one of the rides last week.
Didi has since suspended its operation of Didi Hitch, which pairs passengers with drivers who are traveling in the same direction.
Li Mingzhu, a flight attendant, was allegedly killed by Liu Zhenghua in a ride she hailed via Didi Hitch in the city of Zhengzhou late on May 5, according to police. Her body was found on May 8 in a suburban area in Zhengzhou, Henan province, by local police who responded to a missing-persons report filed by her father.
