Two Vietnamese drivers who were accused of purposely crashing their cars into each other last week in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, southern Vietnam will be kept in custody for three more months pending an investigation, a local police official confirmed on Wednesday morning.

The drivers were identified as Nguyen Dinh Ky, a 41-year-old from Thanh Hoa Province, north-central Vietnam, and Phan Hoang Bich Tien, 31, a native of Dong Nai Province, a neighbor of Ba Ria-Vung Tau.

Police accused these drivers of intentionally crashing their cars into each other due to their conflict.

They were detained pending an investigation into their 'knowingly destroying each other’s property.'

The supposedly deliberate collision involving a VinFast and a Lexus took place at Nguyen Huu Tho - Nguyen Van Linh Intersection in the province’s Ba Ria City on November 20 evening, according to police.

The VinFast driven by Tien rear-ended the Lexus steered by Ky. After that, Ky turned his Lexus around and crashed head-on into the VinFast twice.

Consequently, the front of the cars were badly damaged.

The city’s police arrived at the scene of the deliberate crash in the same evening and issued an urgent arrest warrant for the two drivers on November 21.

In the following days, police officers extended the detention of the drivers and waited for a car damage assessment report before deciding to keep them in custody for three more months to probe their acts.
