A woman was killed after a car crashed into her home along a national highway in Lam Dong Province, located in Vietnam’s Central Highlands, on Saturday.

The seven-seater automobile was traveling along the section of National Highway 20 in Loc Son Ward, Bao Loc City in the afternoon at high speed prior to the accident.

The car suddenly entered the lane of the opposite direction and hit a woman who was carrying her son on a motorbike.

The automobile then mounted the sidewalk and crashed into the front of a house, before hitting several motorbikes parked on the promenade, and only came to a complete stop when it slammed into a big tree.
