Wang Zhenwei, a man in his thirties, played computer games at Internet cafes late at night and only slept for a short while in two consecutive days before the accident, police said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon.
Wang slept for less than four hours Sunday morning, just hours before the crash, said the statement, adding that he also took crystal meth on Friday night.
Police said that Wang, who was only slightly injured in the crash, drove while tired and lost control of the vehicle, therefore should bear full responsibility for the accident.
