HẢI PHÒNG — Two container trucks going in the same direction crashed into each other and exploded on Nguyễn Bỉnh Khiêm Street in coastal Hải Phòng City at around 3am on Wednesday morning.
Two persons sitting in the cabin of one of the trucks died on the spot, while the driver of the other truck suffered serious injuries and was taken to a hospital.
