Two teachers died and another was seriously injured after a pickup truck fell off a cliff in Ky Son District, located in the north-central province of Nghe An, on Friday.

Xong Ba Cha, principal of My Ly 2 Elementary School, Nguyen Dinh Dan, Cha’s deputy, and Lu Thi Khuyen, a teacher at the same school, were on their way home after work on a pickup truck on Friday afternoon.

The car suddenly plunged off a cliff in Yen Hoa Village, My Ly Commune, Ky Son District, at around 5:00 pm.

Relevant forces immediately reached the scene, where the pickup truck was seen being deformed in the middle of a rocky beach by a river, to rush the three teachers to the hospital right after the accident.

Dan and Khuyen were later pronounced dead while Cha was still in emergency treatment for severe injuries.

Leaders of Ky Son District’s bureau of education and training also came to the scene to facilitate the probe, according to Nguyen Trong Hoan, office chief of the Nghe An Department of Education and Training.

They visited the three teachers’ houses to send condolences to their families.
