THUA THIEN-HUE (VNS)— Two men died after being hit by a fast approaching south-north SE2 train, while they were trying to cross the rail line yesterday afternoon in the central Thua Thien-Hue Province.

The accident took place in the province's Loc Thuy Commune in Phu Loc District. Eyewitnesses said the men, who were on a motorbike, were attempting to cross the rail line to go to a hamlet, even as others had stopped to let the train pass.

This was the second instance of a train collision at the same site during the last month and a half. No barrier has been placed at the railway crossing.

Earlier in the day, a woman was killed after being a hit by local train in the central Quang Binh Province. The train was going from the local Dong Hoi Township to Vinh City in Nghe An Province. — VNS
