A serial traffic accident among a tractor-trailer, a refrigerator truck, a dump truck, and a passenger bus on Bao Loc Pass en route to Da Lat City in Vietnam’s Central Highlands province of Lam Dong injured four people on Monday.

The tractor-trailer steered by Hoang Dinh Quang, a 37-year-old resident of Ho Chi Minh City, on its way from Da Lat to the southern city suddenly overturned at the beginning of a sharp bend on Bao Loc Pass at around 1:00 pm on the day.

Its shipping container fell on the refrigerator truck controlled by Phan Chi Cuong, 28, living in Lam Dong, traveling in the opposite direction.

The tractor-trailer went on to collide with a passenger bus behind the refrigerator truck, causing a dump truck at the back of the passenger bus to rear-end the bus.

Nguyen Tri Tuan, 45, from Ho Chi Minh City, drove the passenger bus while Nguyen The Su, 48, from Lam Dong controlled the dump truck.

At the scene of the crash, wreckage stretched tens of meters on Bao Loc Pass. 

The tractor-trailer’s cabin and the entire refrigerator truck were crushed and deformed while the front part and half of the body of the passenger bus were damaged.
