A 57-year-old driver from Hai Duong City under the namesake province in northern Vietnam was confirmed dead after his Mazda CX5 crashed into a river in the city on Friday night.

The fatal crash occurred at around 7:00 pm on Bach Dang Street alongside the Sat River.

The driver, named N.N.H., was the only one inside the car at the time of the incident.

Right after the white Mazda plunged into the river, two police officers on duty and several residents near the scene of the crash immediately went into the river to rescue the driver and rush him to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment, but he was pronounced dead after that.

A rescue team was then called to the scene to pull the car from the river.

In related news, another white Mazda plunged into Dinh Cong Lake in Hanoi’s Hoang Mai District on Friday morning, after the driver lost control of the vehicle while making a turn.

He immediately opened a car window to signal for help.

A dozen residents then used a string to jointly pull the car and the driver from the lake safely.
