Two young children were killed after a parked truck slid down a slope and crashed into a house in Vietnam’s Central Highlands on Monday afternoon.

The accident took place in Dinh Trang Thuong Commune, Di Linh District, Lam Dong Province at around 4:20 pm on Monday, the district police unit confirmed later the same day.

A truck was parked along a local street when it slid down a slope and crashed into a wooden house on the side of the road.

The house completely collapsed, killing a four-year-old girl and a two-year-old boy.
