HA NOI (VNS) — A motorcyclist was killed when a car collided with his vehicle on National Highway 1A in central Ha Tinh City yesterday.
The motorcycle rider Vo Cong Thanh, 42, of Ha Tinh Province, was knocked down by Mai Phuc Trung, 25, on the Cay Bridge on the highway.
After the accident, instead of stopping to help, Trung attempted to flee, and in the process dragged the unconscious victim, Thanh and his vehicle along for 15 metres. He then drove away from the spot.
Some on-duty policemen, realising what had happened, chased the car for three kilometres before forcing it to stop.
The motorcyclist was hospitalised, but died of his injuries.
The cause of the accident is being investigated by the province's relevant authorities. — VNS
