One person was killed while many others were injured after a seven-seater car slammed into multiple motorbikes on a street in District 7, Ho Chi Minh City, on Tuesday.

The accident happened at around 6:00 pm on Nguyen Huu Tho Street.

The car, whose driver apparently lost control of the vehicle, first hit a couple on a motorbike, before plowing into three other motorcyles, according to eyewitnesses.

Le Tuan Thong, 45, one of the victims, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper he was carrying his wife on their motorbike, heading from Kenh Te Bridge to Nguyen Van Linh, when the seven-seater car crashed them from behind, throwing both of them to the street.

The vehicle continued to mount the sidewalk and only came to a complete halt when it plunged into a nearby dry canal.

An unidentified man died on the spot after the accident, whereas some four others were severely injured.

Police had to block part of Nguyen Huu Tho Street and are investigating the cause of the accident.
