ĐÀ NẴNG  — Two people died and another 11 were wounded after a bus travelling from HCM City to Quảng Trị Province suddenly lost control and rolled on the ring-road at Hải Vân Tunnel in Đà Nẵng at about 5am Monday morning.

Colonel Lê Ngọc, head of the city’s traffic police office, said the bus, owned by a company from HCM City, was carrying 29 passengers homes for Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday, when it suddenly capsized in Hòa Liên Commune in Hòa Vang District, 20km west of the city centre.

The injured passengers were taken to Đà Nẵng General Hospital. Another 4 passengers were taken home to Quảng Trị Province by another bus.

The traffic safety agency and traffic police are investigating the accident.

The city’s people’s committee donated VNĐ10 million (US$442) to support families of the dead, and provide medical service to the wounded.

It was the worst traffic accident in the city since the start of 2018. — VNS
