Three people, including two drivers, were severely injured after a bus crashed into a truck in Vietnam's Central Highlands this morning.
The bus, driven by Tran Van Hoa, 44, first collided with a motorbike traveling on the same direction on National Highway 14 through Dak Lak Province at around 9:30 a.m.
The motorist was thrown off the bike but he only sustained minor injuries. 
The bus then crashed head-on into the truck driven by Hua Nguyen Tran Nam, 30, which was traveling on the opposite direction. 
Hoa and Nam and Nguyen Thi Kim Yen, a female passenger on the bus, were seriously injured. 
Nam was stuck in the cabin, and it took local residents some time before they managed to pull him out. 
The heads of the bus and the truck were badly damaged after the collision. 
Local authorities are still investigating the crash.
