Tuk-tuk is a common vehicle in Quan Lan Island


According to the Van Don District Medical Centre, two tourists have asked to be transferred to general hospitals. The others have only minor injuries.

The accident occurred on July 17. The tourists were touring the island on the tuk-tuk when it suddenly flipped over. Eight adults and one child were quickly given first aid and transferred to the Van Don District Medical Centre.

Quan Lan authorities said the driver might have been driving too fast and caused the accident. They also arranged to let families of the injured stay at guest houses and hotels near the medical centre.

Tuk-tuk is a common vehicle in Quan Lan thanks to its light model which can go to narrow paths and is more suited to the island terrain. However, tuk-tuks are usually homemade, often fail to meet standards and do not have registration.

A Quan Lan Island Commune official said tuk-tuks would be banned by the end of 2018 as it was difficult to manage this type of vehicle.
