DONG NAI (VNS) — The People's Procuracy of southern Dong Nai Province decided to prosecute and remand Ngo Tien Phung, 22, to custody for two months yesterday.
Phung has been remanded to custody for allegedly violating road traffic regulations, which resulted in the death of Lin Ma Sang–a motorcycle escort on duty during a women's bicycle race on March 1.
The accident occurred when cyclists and motorcycle escorts were about a kilometre away from the starting line, and a group of motorcyclists, including Phung, drove by at a high speed tried to overtake the escorts.
While trying to avoid the cyclists' group, Sang rammed his bike into another escort's motorcycle from behind and fell to the ground. Sang was then run over by Phung's motorcycle and died on the spot. — VNS
