HCM City — A Phuong Trang coach driver was killed in a road accident about 2am today on a Highway 20 section in Ha Lam Commune in Lam Dong Province's Da Huoai District.
A Thanh Buoi coach, being driven by Nguyen Kim Quyet from Da Lat City to HCM City, had slowed down to avoid a truck that had overturned on the road in the Central Highland province.
A Phuong Trang coach driver Nguyen Tran Thien, travelling behind Quyet's coach in the same direction, was unable to control his vehicle and crashed into the Thanh Buoi coach.
Following this, Dang Huu Tran Khanh, the driver of another Phuong Trang coach, crashed his vehicle into the back of Thien's coach, and then hit the pavement on the right.
Seven passengers were injured in the accident, while all three coaches were badly damaged.
The traffic police and the provincial authorities were clearing the traffic jam caused by the accident. — VNS
