A passenger bus with 20 people onboard crashed into the fence of a bridge in the central province of Quang Binh on Wednesday, leaving one dead and ten others injured.
The vehicle was seen with its rear wheels stuck in the bridge, while the upper part of its body heads down to the stream beneath as police came.
Police said the accident occurred at around 2:30 am the same day, with the passenger bus, operated by Tu Lan Co., suspected of losing control at a sharp bend.
The vehicle was carrying 15 passengers and five members of the operating firm on a north-to-south route when it crashed into the bridge, standing about ten meters above the waters, according to officers.
Panicked passengers shouted for help, and were quickly rescued and taken to hospital by locals.
The deceased passenger was identified as 30-year-old Tran Thuyen, hailing from the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak.
The injured are being treated at different hospitals in Quang Binh.
