At least two people were dead and 12 others were injured after a speeding car crashed into two cars and several motorbikes on a Ho Chi Minh City street on Friday.
At around 4:30 p.m. on Friday, the four seater Toyota Altis was traveling on Ly Thai To Street in District 10 when it crashed into two cars going the same direction.
The four-seater continued to crash into a crowd of motorists who had stopped before a red light at the Ly Thai To-Su Van Hanh crossroad.
After the car hit the crowd, a motorbike was thrown into the intersection and burst into flames, leaving some people burned and injured.
The car fled the scene but was later stopped by passersby. The car driver, Tran Anh Huy, a 42-year-old doctor at the Children's Hospital 1, was taken to a nearby police station for investigation.
At the accident scene, 13 motorbikes and two cars were damaged. A woman died on the spot, and another woman succumbed to her injuries after being taken to hospital.
Most of the injured victims suffered from multiple injuries and burns. Eight of the 12 injured people were released from the hospital on Saturday morning.
The remaining four are reported to be in stable condition.
Police are investigating the accident.
