A Russian man, allegedly drunk, is believed to have caused a traffic accident in the central province of Phan Thiet, killing a local who was riding home from his late shift.
Olegs Kabcob, 40, was rushed to a hospital in the early hours of Wednesday morning with severe injuries, police said, adding that the man is still in critical condition.
The Russian just left a late party at a restaurant in the resort town of Mui Ne and was on his way back to his hotel.
He had not been granted any driving license in Vietnam, police said.
Initial investigations at the scene showed that Kabcob’s motorbike had veered to the wrong side of the road, crashing into the motorbike of Nguyen Trung Trieu.
Trieu, a 22-year-old worker, was coming home from his late shift.
Both of the vehicles were badly damaged.
