Trinh Ba Trong, a 39-year-old resident of Gia Lam District in Hanoi, was taken into police custody on Wednesday after he drove his car into a male security guard, which led to the latter’s death.
The car driver’s alcohol concentration was measured at 0.454mg per liter of breath, well above Vietnam’s limit.
On Tuesday afternoon, Trong parked his car at an intersection in the Vinhomes Ocean Park urban area in Gia Lam District, so a security guard, identified as Vu Trung D., 26, locked the wheel of his car.
When Trong came to his car, the security guard unlocked the wheel and requested him to make a written commitment not to park his car in an illegal parking space again. However, Trong declined the request and drove his car.
The security guard rode a motorbike to pursue Trong and asked the latter to stop, but the car driver slammed into the motorcycle, leaving the guard seriously injured.
The guard was hospitalized, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The driver also hit two other nearby cars.
After being notified of the incident, the police of Gia Lam District approached the scene for an investigation.
