BÌNH DƯƠNG — A pregnant woman was killed instantly when a container truck crashed into her motorbike from behind in Dĩ An town in Bình Dương Province yesterday morning.
Lê Thị Quyên, 25, of Hà Tĩnh, who was in her seventh month of pregnancy, was on Sóng Thần Flyover when the giant vehicle hit her, according to witnesses.
The truck driver fled the scene after the accident.
Since July there have been at least 10 traffic accidents involving container trucks in the province.
A large number of container trucks go through Dĩ An to reach the numerous industrial zones in the highly industrialised province, causing many accidents in the town.
According to Trần Thanh Liêm, vice chairman of the Bình Dương People’s Committee, the province contributes 12 percent of the country’s exports.
It also accounts for 12 percent of all container trucks in the country. — VNS
