A serial crash occurred in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang on Sunday, with a truck, two passenger buses, and four cars colliding before running into a beverage stall and several houses along National Highway 1.

The accident happened at around 9:00 am in Hoa Khanh Commune, Cai Be District, local police confirmed.

According to preliminary information, a truck was running on the highway toward the Trung Luong-My Thuan direction.

It was controlled by a 37-year-old driver, Nguyen Van Loi, a native of An Giang Province, at the time of the accident.

When passing the section of Tien Giang Province, it suddenly hit a four-seater car, leading to serial collisions with a 16-seat passenger bus, another four-seater car, and a seven-seater vehicle in the same direction.

Due to the strong crash, the seven-seater car slid and ran into a 16-seater passenger bus and another seven-seater car, causing the two cars to smash into a drink vending stall and some houses along the highway.

After the pile-up, the seven vehicles were badly damaged but there were no casualties recorded.

As the accident occurred on National Highway 1, severe traffic jams took place for hours.

Traffic police rushed to the scene immediately to investigate the cause of the accident and regulate the traffic.
