Two people were killed and another injured after an automobile carrying local fishery officials collided with a motorbike and crashed into a fruit stall in Thanh Hoa Province, north-central Vietnam on Sunday.

The accident took place along a street in An Hung Ward, Thanh Hoa City at around 7:15 am, the provincial Department of Public Security confirmed later the same day.

The car, driven by 39-year-old Nguyen Van Thong, was traveling on the street when it slammed into a motorbike steered by a 66-year-old man.

The automobile then lost control and crashed into a fruit stall on the side of the road.

Two sellers at the fruit stall were killed on the spot, while the motorbike driver was injured and hospitalized.

Thong reported the case to local police following the incident.

Preliminary information showed that the car driver was not under the influence of alcohol.
