The Myanmar Times - - News -

A con­tainer truck en route to Yan­gon Re­gion’s Bo­tah­taung town­ship from Bago Re­gion’s Thanat­pin town­ship was speed­ing in Seikkan town­ship on Au­gust 11 when it hit two pedes­tri­ans and de­stroyed a post used to power the elec­tric train. The driver, Win Aung, 50, could face up to seven years in prison for the K12 mil­lion dam­age done to the post.

There is no word on the con­di­tion of the pedes­tri­ans. Kyaw Thet, 37, were stopped by po­lice at a bus gate. Aung Kyaw’s bag con­tained K19,500, which, po­lice say, was stolen.

They face up to three years in prison.
