A sleeper bus running from north-central Nghe An Province to Hanoi collided with a motorbike and overturned in northern Ninh Binh Province, killing four people and injuring five others late on Monday night.

The fatal traffic accident occurred on a section of National Highway 1A in Ninh Binh at around 11:50 pm on the day, the provincial police reported.

The sleeper bus was driven by Nguyen Ngoc S., a 38-year-old resident of Nghe An, and was carrying about 30 passengers from the north-central province’s Do Luong District to Hanoi.

It overturned after hitting a motorbike ridden by Vu Minh T., a 70-year-old resident of Ninh Binh, at the T-intersection between National Highway 1A and Tue Tinh Street in the northern province.

The crash caused the deaths of T. and three passengers hailing from Nghe An aboard the sleeper bus -- namely 12-year-old Phan Uy V., 20-year-old Nguyen Tat Ng., and 20-year-old Nguyen Tai Ng.

Five other Nghe An-based passengers on the sleeper bus, including 19-year-old Le Duc H., 22-year-old Hoang Tien Th., 45-year-old Nguyen Quoc Nh., 80-year-old Vu Thi L., and 63-year-old Vu Thi L., were injured.

The sleeper bus, the motorbike, a street light pole, and a traffic light post were damaged in the road accident.

Local police examined the scene and worked with the people involved to investigate the cause.
