DONG NAI (VNS) — Three people were injured when a train crashed into a truck yesterday afternoon in Xuan Tho Commune in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Nai.
Despite the ringing of the train's warning bell, a truck ignored the signal and was struck by the train, traveling on the HCM City – Thua Thien-Hue route.
The train's driver, Dang Quang Hien, 30, was seriously injured in the damaged driver's cabin.
Officials said it took two hours to ease Hien from the train, after which he was rushed to a hospital for treatment.
The truck driver and the train driver's assistant were also injured in the crash.
The tracks were cleared and rail traffic resumed that same evening, according to officials.
