In Vietnam, female driver allegedly causes girl’s death in serial traffic accident while live streaming

A serial traffic accident between a car, whose female driver was said to be live streaming while steering it, a motorbike and an electric bicycle killed a 16-year-old girl in Lam Dong Province of Vietnam’s Central Highlands region on Thursday.

The accident occurred at 7:40 am at the T intersection between 30 Thang 4 and Pham Ngoc Thach Streets in Da Teh District, Lam Dong, local police reported the following day.

When N.Y.N., a 16-year-old high school student, was making a left turn into Pham Ngoc Thach Street in accordance with the traffic light there, N.D.T, a resident of Cat Tien District, rode his motorbike in the same direction and collided with N.’s bike, knocking the girl down to the road surface.

At that time, N.N.T., a resident of Da Teh District driving in the same direction behind N. and T., was unable to react and let her car run over N.’s body, causing the victim to die on the spot.

The scene of the accident was broadcast online via a mobile phone from inside the car, prompting many people to believe that T. was using her cellphone at the time of the accident.  

A source later told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper there were signs that the female driver was live streaming while driving.

The Vietnamese law stipulates that car drivers using mobile phones while driving will be fined VND1-2 million (US$43-86).
