At least two people have been killed and 10 others injured after a pile-up involving a dozen cars and motorcycles in Ho Chi Minh City.
A seven-seater car crashed into three other cars and nine motorbikes near the intersection of Ha Huy Giap with To Ngoc Van Streets in District 12 on Saturday night, resulting in two people dying and 10 others wounded.
The deceased were identified as Le Cong Dung, 63, who hailed from the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, and Doan Tuan A., 15, a resident of District 12.
The four automobiles and nine motorcycles were seen being badly damaged at the scene.
According to initial information, the seven-seater car was traveling on Ha Huy Giap Street toward the To Ngoc Van-Ha Huy Giap intersection at around 8:00 pm when it rammed the nine motorbikes and three cars running on the two-way street.
“We are still trying to figure out the exact cause of the accident,” said Senior Lieutenant Colonel Tran Van Tam, deputy chief of the police department in District 12.
Some witnesses presumed that the driver of the seven-seater car had mistakenly hit the gas pedal instead of the brake one, VnExpress reported.
