At about 2 a.m. on June 26, a foreign woman driving a motorbike on Tran Nhat Duat Street near Hanoi's Long Bien Railway Station fell in the street and was knocked unconscious, eyewitness Bui Tuan Dat told VnExpress.

Police of Dong Xuan Ward in Hoan Kiem District on Sunday confirmed the accident by phone, without providing further details.

From Facebook photos, the woman seems to be Caucasian. Her motorbike is a Yamaha's Nouvo with a number registered in the nearby Bac Ninh Province.

The woman was hospitalized with serious injuries and blood all over her body.

Another eyewitness said she was swaying before crashing in the street.

Locals gathered around the woman but were afraid to move her for fear of damaging her spine.
