Civilians were the heroes this time when they caught a hit-and-run suspect.


On January 20, Seoul police officials reported that back on the 16th, Mr. 'A,' who was driving under the influence at the time crashed into an oncoming motorcycle while making a left turn. 'A' did not stop after the accident and fled the scene.


Victim Mr. Lee who was making a delivery at that moment was immediately rushed to the hospital where he later passed away.


A witness at the scene, Mr. Lee Won Hee, an Audi owner dialed emergency services and chased after the hit-and-run suspect with Mr. Ryu Jae Ha who also witnessed what had happened and was driving behind him.


After a 13 kilometer (8 mile) chase, the suspect was finally caught thanks to the efforts of the civilians who disabled 'A's vehicle.  It was reported that 'A' had an alcoholic level of 0.159%.


Having suffered 15 million KRW ($13,000 USD) in damages to their vehicles, Mr. Lee and Mr. Ryu decided to give the reward money to the victim's family for funeral proceedings instead of accepting it to repair their vehicles.


Mr. Lee stated, "I am glad to have done a good thing however it saddens me to hear the motorcycle driver had passed away."

    Wonder what the average prison sentence for DUI homicide is in South Korea? Do they even sentence prison if the killer bows and apologizes?

    It kinda pisses me off when you guys protect the name of assholes like these. The public deserves to know who these people are since they are a danger to society.

    I think that the original Korean sources aren't allowed to publish the full names of the parties involved so AllKpop doesn't have access to those names either.

    No, you don't deserve to know his name and there seriously isn't any reason why you should know it and what do you want with it anyways?

    What difference does it make if we know the hit and run driver's name anyways? Like @JFee said, what are going to do even if you knew the name of the person?
