A 17-year-old driver is being held responsible for hitting multiple automobiles and motorbikes along a street in Ho Chi Minh City.

The underage driver was behind the wheel of a red KIA sedan with license plate number 51A - 195.33 on National Highway 13 in Binh Thanh District at around 3:30 pm on Wednesday, when he rear-ended another automobile.

The boy fled the scene, prompting local residents to chase him down and report the situation to officials.

During the ensuing high-speed chase, the sedan hit several more cars and motorbikes before a collision with a car on Chu Van An Street forced it onto its side.

The driver was removed from the car without injury.

According to Vietnamese law, automobile drivers must be aged 18 or older and possess a legitimate driver’s license.

Officers arrived at the scene shortly after the chase to gather witness statements.

According to Thong, one of the motorcyclists hit during the chase, the KIA sedan crashed into four cars and several motorbikes.

Thong’s son, who was riding on the back of his motorbike, was injured and admitted to the hospital for a check-up.

“The young driver must have panicked after hitting the first car,” Thong said.
