Soon after the motorcycles passed her shop, a truck loaded with stones turned right into the path of the motorcycle sending the young people into a wooded area. Two died on the spot and one died in hospital.
Luo Yongdi, a 20-year-old student, was the driver of the motorcycle was originally carrying three passengers along Fenghuang Road, said Su Zhen  who was told by Luo to get off the motorcycle so it could go faster.
Su said that he was wearing earphones and only when Luo began to speed up did he discover that two police motorcycles were behind them.
After Luo ordered Su to jump off the motorcycle he received a call on his cell phone. "Su Ying (another motorcycle passenger) called me to say the police were still chasing them and he asked me to take a car home. About six minutes later, when I tried to call Su Ying, the call wouldn't go through," said Su Zhen.
