KON TUM (VNS) — The People's Procuracy in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum has suspended one senior official who tried to run away after a drink-driving road accident, which injured six motorcyclists on Friday.

Tran Quang Hung, 53, head of the People's Procuracy of Tu Mo Rong District was suspended from his position following his hit-and-run.

When driving a state-owned car, Hung caused at least four crashes on Friday over nearly 30 kilometres and wounded six motorbike riders. Hung refused to stop and defied police attempts to wave him down.

Colonel Tran Thanh Nha, deputy chief of the provincial police department, said that tests confirmed Hung's alcohol concentration exceeded the allowed limit. — VNS
