The Ho Chi Minh City police are looking for a man who allegedly kicked a traffic police officer’s motorbike while fleeing and sent him crashing badly along with a colleague.
Images of the two injured officers lying unconscious on the street last Sunday have gone viral on the Internet.

They ordered him to pull over but the man sped away, leading to a chase.
On Nhi Thien Duong Bridge in District 8, the man kicked at their vehicle and sent them crashing heavily.
The pair was immediately taken to hospital by passers-by.
The police said the man could be criminally charged.
