NAM DINH (VNS) — Two people were struck and killed by a train as they crossed railway tracks at T-junction in Y Yen District, northern Nam Dinh province, according to witnesses.
A witness said today that two men, ages about 49 years old, left a car on the side of National Highway 10 at about 10:30am and crossed the road, heading towards a wooden furniture storage building located near the railway on the other side of the road.
While walking across the railway tracks, a South-North train struck the two men, who died immediately.
The witness said trains running along 30km of highway 10 through the Y Yen District travelled through many residential areas and had, in the past, struck local residents.
Most of the victims were reported to have ignored warning signs or did not pay attention to oncoming trains while crossing the railway tracks. — VNS
