One man was killed and five others were seriously injured when a bus overturned on National Highway 1A  in the central province of Ha Tinh Wednesday.

The accident happened at around 8 a.m. when the bus with 30 passengers and driven by Nguyen Tat Thang, 40, was traveling in Ky Anh District.

Thang reportedly lost control of the vehicle and it plunged into a roadside field before overturning.

Le Huu Quyen, a 60-year-old passenger, died on the spot.

Police arrived at the scene shortly afterwards and rushed the injured to hospital.

Preliminary investigations showed the driver may have lost control because the road was slippery due to heavy rain.
