The People’s Procuracy of Bien Hoa city, southern Dong Nai province, has decided to prosecute and detain a taxi driver in the train-car crash on the Ghenh Bridge that killed two and injured 26 others on Feb. 6.

Driver Tran Minh Chau, born 1967, was charged with rail traffic obstruction in the deadly crash.

Investigations showed that at the traffic jam on the Ghenh Bridge on Feb. 5, the fourth day of the Lunar New Year, Chau was asked to reverse his taxi by a railway guard, but he refused until the train SE2 crashed into six cars stranded on the jam, causing the deadly accident.

Another taxi driver Nguyen Hung Quoc was released due to lack of evidence.

Earlier, Chau and Hung were in the dock for violating traffic rules and preventing staff on duty from discharging their responsibilities.

On Feb. 16, the Bien Hoa municipal People’s Procuracy ratified a decision to prosecute and detain seven people in the deadly accident.

Four railway guards and a signal light controller were charged with neglect of duty causing severe consequences, two train drivers were accused for not stopping the train when the signal lights were not working and for entering the bridge without permission from the guards./.
