One person was killed and seven others injured in a multiple-vehicle crash involving a trailer tractor, a pickup truck, three automobiles, and two motorbikes in the north-central Vietnamese province of Thanh Hoa on Sunday morning.

The accident occurred on a section of National Highway 1A in Quang Tan Commune, Quang Xuong District at around 7:00 am, according to the provincial traffic police division.

Preliminary information showed that a trailer truck first rear-ended a pickup truck before slamming into the median strip.

The trailer truck then hit two motorcycles traveling in the opposite direction and only stopped after crashing into a house at the side of the highway.

Meanwhile, after being hit by the tractor trailer, the pickup truck also collided with three other automobiles running in the same direction.

The trailer truck driver, Dao Dau Tuan, 40, was killed on the spot, while seven people were injured.
