A four-seater car was traveling on a mountain pass in south-central Vietnam when it caught fire and burned to the ground on Friday.
A video surfaced on Facebook the same day of the car engulfed by flames, sending a big column of smoke into the sky.
The incident was verified as taking place on Dai Ninh Pass, which connects the south-central Vietnamese province of Binh Thuan and the Central Highlands of Lam Dong.
The driver managed to get out of the car unscathed, before the vehicle was completely destroyed.
The section of the mountain pass lies in Phan Son Commune, Bac Binh District of Binh Thuan. It is part of the National Highway 22B, which is being repaired over heavy erosion.
Phan Son chairman K’Bay said the car may have caught fire as its lower part hit the rough surface of the road, resulting in short-circuit.
Dai Ninh Pass is a busy traffic route as it is a shortcut for passenger buses to travel between Phan Thiet, the resort town of Binh Thuan, and the tourist city of Da Lat in Lam Dong.
