THANH HOA (VNS) — Thanh Hoa Police today decided to prosecute the case of a scaffolding collapse last Saturday that killed four people at the construction site.
The accident occurred when a team of workers were on the girder part of the Quanh Bridge spanning the Quanh stream in Quan Hoa district's Trung Son commune.
The police worked with district authorities to examine the scene and to conduct the autopsy on the victims after the accident.
The police said the initial cause of the accident was the poor quality of the scaffold system.
Earlier, the provincial authorities suspended construction of the bridge.
The Quanh Bridge project is part of a larger infrastructure project of Thanh Hoa's transport department, which aims to connect the western mountainous districts of the province. — VNS
