HA NOI (VNS)— One person died and another eight people were injured yesterday evening when their taxi crossed a railway intersection and collided with a train in Thuong Thanh Ward, Ha Noi's Long Bien District, despite a signal warning of its approach.

The victims are a family from northern Bac Ninh Province who were on their way to visit relatives in Ha Noi. They were taken to Viet Duc Hospital in serious conditions. The taxi driver escaped from the car just before the crash, fleeing the scene and later reporting the crash to police.

The railroad crossing is reported to have proper automatic warning signals in place, but no barrier. The case is under investigation. —VNS
