A crane truck crashed into two motorbikes and broke a power pole, killing two people and leaving more than 6,400 households without power in Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam on Tuesday.

The traffic accident occurred at around 10:40 am on the day when the crane truck suddenly lost control and slammed into two motorbikes on Ly Thuong Kiet Street in Nhon Trach District.

The truck only stopped after bumping into a power pole on the sidewalk, knocking it down.

The collision killed a motorcyclist at the site while another died en route to hospital.

The truck and motorbikes were seriously damaged.

The collapse of the power pole also resulted in a widespread outage affecting 6,450 households in three communes of Nhon Trach until 4:00 pm on the same day, according to Nhon Trach Power Corporation.
