Ten people were critically injured when two buses collided in the central highlands province of Lam Dong Thursday morning.


Le Minh Dung, one of the rescuers, said the accident happened on the Chuoi Mountain Pass when a bus from the adjacent province of Dak Lak, heading for Dalat Town, crashed into another bus going in the opposite direction.


Ten passengers from both buses suffered multiple injuries, according to initial reports.


Investigations into the accident's cause are now underway.


In other news, 18 people, including eight women and a child, were injured when the bus carrying them capsized in the northern province of Ha Tinh on Wednesday.


Witnesses said the accident took place when it was raining and that the road surface was slippery. The bus was overtaking a truck at high speed when the driver lost control.


The injured people were then rushed to a local hospital, and the remaining 20 passengers caught other buses to reach their destination, according to Ha Phi Hoang, deputy chief of the traffic police department in the province's Ky Anh District.
