HCM CITY (VNS) — There was a long traffic jam on the national highway at the intersection of Binh Phuoc Bridge and District 12 in HCM City this morning.
A truck carrying about 13 tonnes of cashews was travelling through this area, when it suddenly suffered a puncture.
The vehicle overturned, scattering its entire cashew cargo on the road.
A crane-truck was immediately mobilised to remove the truck from the road, but a traffic jam continued to cause inconvenience due to the large quantity of cashews lying on the road.
The authorities were continuing work to clear the road and to control the traffic.
Large vehicles continued to be stranded for hours, unable to move.
Trucks and buses were occupying the motorbike lanes, Le Xuan Huan, one of the hundreds of people stuck on the road, said.
Huan said the traffic jam extended a few kilometers from Binh Phuoc Bridge to Metro supermarket.
The traffic police were trying to clear the obstacles in the area. — VNS
