A total of 11 people were injured after a truck crashed into a group of motorcyclists waiting at a red light in the Mekong Delta province of Long An on Saturday.
The accident occurred at around 2:20 pm at an intersection in Nhi Thanh Commune, Thu Thua District, said Phung Van On, head of the provincial traffic safety committee.
Preliminary information showed that a group of motorcyclists were stopping at a red light when they were hit from behind by a truck with license plate No. 51C-295.41.
About eleven people on the motorbikes were injured following the crash.
Among them, four victims were taken to the hospital over more severe injuries.
Tran Hoang Anh, the 35-year-old truck driver from Ho Chi Minh City, was then summoned to a working session with competent authorities.
Anh blamed the accident on brake failure.
Further investigation is ongoing.
On January 2, a similar road crash also happened in Long An Province, as a trailer truck slammed into 21 motorcycles at a red light, killing four people and injuring 17 others.
An investigation later revealed that the 32-year-old driver had consumed alcohol prior to the crash.
