Authorities have filed lawsuits against two men killed while illegally riding motorcycles on the Yangon-Mandalay Expressway.
Min Soe died on the spot when he was hit by a bus while turning his motorbike across the expressway at Mile Post 137 shortly after midnight on 16 March. Motorbikes are not allowed on the expressway.
On 15 March, U Pauksa, 71, of Gwaygone village in Wundwin Township, Mandalay Region, met a similar fate when he tried to turn his bike at Mile Post 311. He was rushed to hospital but died soon afterwards.
On 15 March, a light truck carrying monks and laypersons lost control and hit concrete roadblocks at Mile Post 168 on the expressway. An 88-year old monk died on the spot and three others sustained injuries.
Under the Myanmar legal system, lawsuits are filed against parties at fault in traffic incidents, even those who have died, in order to formally clear other parties of wrongdoing.–Police Information
