Two people were killed when their truck crashed into a container that fell from a trailer on a mountain pass in central Vietnam on Thursday.
The trailer was believed to be heading to Ho Chi Minh City when its container fell on the road on the Mimosa Moutain Pass in Da Lat City.
The truck was travelling in the opposite direction with three people in the cabin, including the driver, Nguyen Huy Vu, 35, his mother, Le Thi Thu, 64, and an assistant driver.
After the crash, rescuers found Vu and Thu dead in the crushed cabin, while the assistant driver sustained minor injuries. The trailer fled the scene.
Police are still investigating.
