HA NOI (VNS) — A 60-year-old woman was killed and a two-year-old child seriously injured after they were hit by a taxi yesterday afternoon in Ha Noi's Ba Dinh District.

The accident happened when a Thanh Nhan cab lost control in front of number 431 Hong Ha Street and struck a wall across the street, hitting the woman and child who were playing outdoors, according to witnesses. It took about two hours to extricate the woman's body from between the car and the wall. The injured child was taken to hospital immediately.

Initial investigations revealed that the driver did not own the taxi he was driving. He is said to be a vehicle attendant somewhere near the scene of the accident. He borrowed the cab for a drive and caused the accident.

Police are investigating. — VNS
