QUANG NGAI — A motorcyclist and his passenger died when they fell off their bike and were run over by a car in central Quang Ngai Province.
The two men, both 62, were on their way to Binh Nguyen Commune when they had a minor brush with another bike going in the same direction and fell off. The car that ran over them was also going in the same direction.
They died at the scene of the accident which is one of eight "black spots" on Highway 1A.
On the same day, a car carrying two men plunged off a cliff in mountainous northern Lao Cai Province.
The car reportedly belonged to Si Ma Cai District Command. The two men included a senior lieutenant colonel and the car driver.
Authorities are investigating to determine the cause of the accident. — VNS
