One man died and at least two others were injured after a truck slammed into multiple motorcycles which were stopping at a red light in Binh Duong Province, southern Vietnam on Tuesday evening.
The fatal crash took place on a My Phuoc-Tan Van Road section in the provincial city of Thuan An at around 7:00 pm, when the truck was en route from Thuan An Hoa Street to My Phuoc-Tan Van Road.
The truck driver was identified as Ha Dinh Be, 43, residing in the provincial city of Tan Uyen.
At the scene of the accident, three damaged motorcycles were found lying in front of the truck.
One of the victims, identified as Tran Chi Cuong, 20, a native of northern Nam Dinh Province, was crushed to death by the truck.
Meanwhile, Mai Van Han, 36, residing in Binh Duong, and Pham Ngoc Thuy, 43, a native of north-central Quang Binh Province, were injured and rushed to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment.
The truck also hit a tractor-trailer, leaving both damaged.
Police are investigating the cause of the deadly crash.
My Phuoc-Tan Van is a major road for freight transport that links Binh Duong with neighboring Ho Chi Minh City and other southeastern provinces.
A large number of trucks and tractor-trailers travel on this road every day, posing a high risk of traffic accidents.
