Four students were killed in a motorbike crash in Vietnam in which the driver was carrying four people in the small hours of Sunday.

A young man was driving a motorcycle in the northern province of Thai Nguyen at 1:00 am when he crashed into the median barriers on Luong Ngoc Quyen Street, according to police reports.

The driver died instantly while three other young men riding pillion were killed on the spot.

The fifth person on the bike, a young woman, was critically injured and is now treated in the hospital.

All five were enrolled in the Thai Nguyen-based College of Trade and Tourism under the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Le Quang Tien, the provincial chairman, said.

“They were traveling on the same motorbike before slamming into the median barriers,” Tien said.

“Four died in the crash.

“Among them were two from Cao Bang Province, one from Bac Kan Province, one from Ha Giang Province, and one from Dong Hy District, Thai Nguyen Province.”

Thai Nguyen police have confirmed the fatalities and been investigating the accident.
