HAI DUONG (VNS) — A man trying to cross a level crossing was killed after being hit by the HP2 train in Phu Thai Town, Kim Thanh District, Hai Duong Province, last night.

The train was going from Hai Phong to Ha Noi.

The 31-year-old victim, named Vu Duc Ngoc, was a resident of Kinh Mon District in Hai Duong Province. Ngoc died instantly, while his motorbike was badly damaged.

The concerned authorities reached the accident site to investigate the matter.

Statistics from the Viet Nam Railway Authority under the transport ministry showed that 70 per cent of Viet Nam's railway accidents occurred at level crossings that lacked safety fences. Most of the accidents were reportedly caused by motorists who failed to follow traffic rules. — VNS
