HÀ NỘI — Four people have died and three injured in two traffic accidents in Quảng Ninh and Kon Tum provinces.

The main cause of the accident is due to the driver’s driving in the wrong lane and losing control of the speed, according to the authorities.
In a separate incident, a truck tilted on a bend and fell on another car at around 6pm Sunday in Lò Xo Pass in Kon Tum. The collision killed the 37-year-old father and 18-year-old son and injured the 35-year-old mother and two-year-old son of the family in the car.
The authorities are investigating both crashes.
