At least five people have been injured after a long-haul bus rammed multiple motorcycles that were stopping at a red light in southern Vietnam this weekend.
The accident occurred along a section of National Highway 13 in Thu Dau Mot City, Binh Duong Province, at around 11:00 am on Saturday.
According to witnesses, the 24-seater minicoach of the Anh Tuan passenger bus lines hit multiple motorbikes at the red light in front of Binh Duong University.
The minibus did not slow down and seemingly attempted to run the red light prior to the crash, the witnesses added.
At least five people were hospitalized due to serious injuries while several others suffered minor scratches.

At the site of the accident, four motorcycles were lying across the street with severe damage, while the minibus had its front distorted and windshield shattered.
Passengers on the minicoach were terrified and got off the vehicle as soon as it stopped.
Competent agencies have initiated an investigation into the crash.
