HCM CITY — A semi-trailer and a passenger bus collided early Friday morning in HCM City’s District 4, leaving the bus driver with a broken leg and 14 passengers slightly injured.

At around 5.30am on Khánh Hội Street near Kênh Tẻ Bridge, the semi-trailer with 6.1m containers suddenly ploughed into the road divider and rammed the bus which was travelling in the opposite direction, according to the District 4 Traffic Police.

Though there were many passengers in the bus, miraculously no one was killed or seriously injured.

Both vehicles were damaged.

On receiving a call, police and firefighting and prevention police officers arrived at the scene to remove the passengers from the bus and take the injured people to People’s Hospital 115 in District 10.

The accident blocked the road until a salvage truck arrived and took them away.  

Investigators are examining the cause of the accident. — VNS
