LONG AN – One person was killed and 18 others were seriously injured when a shuttle bus carrying workers flipped over and rolled over several times in Long An Province on Tuesday night.
The accident occurred at 8pm on Provincial Road 824 in Bến Lức District when the bus crashed into the pavement and turned turtle.
Twenty five workers -- of Bethel Vina Company -- were stuck inside unable to get out until local residents and rescuers arrived.
According to Phùng Văn On, deputy head of the Long An Province’S Traffic Safety Committee, it was hard for the rescuers since it was dark and there were no road lights in that section.
It took until 11pm to pull the occupants out, and one of them, an unidentified male worker, was found dead.
The injured people were rushed to Hậu Nghĩa General Hospital in Đức Hòa District.
Most of the workers are residents of Đức Hòa and Đức Huệ districts in Long An. — VNS
