HÀ NỘI — The driver of a three-wheeler transporting steel sheets was injured after he failed to stop his vehicle while going down a slope in Hà Nội’s Chúc Sơn town on Monday.

This is the third accident in the last 10 days involving a three-wheeler carrying steel plates.

The man, who was driving the vehicle loaded with sharp steel sheets used for building roofs, suffered serious cuts on his back because of the sheets as he did not hit the brakes on time. The accident took place in Chợ Cống.

He was quickly taken to a local hospital. Witnesses said the edges of the sheets had not been covered to prevent injuries to drivers and other people on the road.

On September 24, a nine-year-old boy in Hà Nội’s Hoàng Mai district died after his bicycle crashed into a parked cyclo carrying steel sheets and his throat got slashed. He was rushed to hospital, but died from severe blood loss.

A day later, a 64-year-old woman died after her throat got cut similarly when she was hit by a three-wheeler transporting sharp steel sheets in Hà Nội’s Hà Đông district. — VNS
