Two people have been killed and four others severely injured after a car slammed into street guard rails in Vietnam this week.

The automobile was traveling on the section of National Highway 1 in Bac Trach Commune, Bo Trach District, Quang Binh Province when it rammed the railings at around 3:30 pm on Wednesday.

The vehicle was steered by Mai Van Thang, 54, carrying along six people from the central city of Da Nang to the north-central province of Nghe An for Lunar New Year celebration.

The accident claimed the lives of Thang and a passenger, Hoang Thi Tho, while four other people in the car suffered serious wounds.

Competent authorities are carrying out an investigation into the incident.

According to the National Traffic Safety Committee, a total of 22 traffic accidents occurred across Vietnam on Wednesday, two days before the Lunar New Year begins, killing 20 people and injuring 28 others.

Among them, 21 crashes happened on the streets, while the other was a railroad accident.

Traffic police dealt with 6,455 traffic violations, issuing fines worth a combined VND6 billion (US$264,389), impounding 583 vehicles, and revoking 297 driver's licenses.
