Le Hoa Binh, standing deputy chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee, passed away in a traffic accident on an expressway on Tuesday morning.

Binh, 52, passed away at Long An Province General Hospital, director of the provincial Department of Health Huynh Minh Phuc confirmed on Tuesday noon, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

The official was taken to the hospital in critical conditions after the accident occurring at 7:45 am on the Ho Chi Minh City - Trung Luong Expressway, when he was on a business trip to the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang.

The tire of the seven-seater car, driven by 33-year-old Nguyen Quang Vinh, suddenly blew out, causing the vehicle to flip over in Ben Luc District, Long An.

It was carrying Binh and another man, Duong Tan Truoc, 41, at that time.

Binh had cardiac and respiratory arrests when hospitalized and he succumbed to his severe conditions despite doctors' great efforts.
