Update: December, 10/2012 - 09:59

CAO BANG (VNS)— At least five people were killed and 12 others injured when a vehicle tumbled from the Keo Put mountain pass in the province's Tra Linh District.

Early yesterday afternoon, witnesses saw a truck travelling from Quang Yen District to the city of Cao Bang fall from the Keo Put pass, with the driver stuck inside.

Many passers-by stop-ped to rescue the victim. However, a container truck travelling along the higher section of the mountain pass swept them off the cliff. Four of them died immediately.

According to witnesses, some were able to escape because they managed to jump from the cliff and land safely, avoiding the container. — VNS
