HCM CITY (VNS) — A biker died after being hit by a height barrier of the Quang Trung flyover in HCM City's District 12 early this morning.
A crane-truck being towed by another vehicle got stuck in the barrier when the vehicle was about to cross the bridge at about 2.30am, due to driver's carelessness. The falling iron barrier hit 52-year-old Tran Van Lop of the southern Ben Tre Province, who was riding a motorbike in the opposite direction.
The crane-truck also slipped and collided with two other trucks and a taxi on the road.
Police and rescue teams came to remove all the vehicles. The case is under further investigation. — VNS
