A Chinese woman recently hit and killed a pedestrian with her car. Afterwards, she danced over the body of the victim, according to a video released by The People’s Daily, Aug. 15.

At 9:50 p.m., August 10, a woman in Zoucheng, Shandong hit a pedestrian near the People’s Theater, at the Pingyang Road-Gangshan Road intersection, reported the Sina News Center. After being knocked into the air, the man landed on the windshield. At that point, the woman sped up with the injured man still plastered to the front of her car. She drove around 650 feet before hitting another vehicle and flinging the victim into the street. After pummeling the man with her car, the woman stepped out of her vehicle and danced. The woman also sang.

Law enforcement officials at the Zoucheng Public Security Bureau rushed to the scene. Before the perpetrator could finish her rather twisted performance, she was taken into police custody, and her victim was sent to the hospital.

Onlookers claim the man hit was “folded like a piece of paper,” according to The Paper, another Chinese news outlet. When asked about the woman from the incident, one witness said, “She is definitely crazy.”

Although medical teams did their best to save him, the victim, a Mr. Zhang, passed away Monday. The injuries he sustained during the accident were irreparable. The woman is currently being detained for reckless endangerment, reported China Xiao Kang, and additional charges are expected.

Investigators  already ruled out driving under the influence of either drugs or alcohol as the cause of the recent accident. Medical professionals suspect that the woman may be mentally ill, but some people on Weibo (the Chinese Twitter equivalent) have suggested that she may be faking to receive a lighter sentence, the Shanghaiist reported.

The following is a video released by the People’s Daily:
