A driver turned himself in to police in Hanoi's Phuc Tho District Monday, one day after he crashed his car into a motorbike, killing three people.

The incident occurred at 3 p.m. when the Toyota Fortuner was traveling in Phuc Tho's Phung Thuong Commune and suddenly crashed into a motorbike with three people on it on the opposite side of the road.

The driver has been identified as Nguyen Manh Chi, 54, a Hanoi resident, according to news reports.

Tran Van Kien, 33, Tran Thi Vo, 35, and Nguyen Duc Truong, 8, all Phuc Tho residents, were killed on the spot.

Witnesses said the car was going too fast and the driver lost control, allowing the car to travel on the wrong side of the road.

They said the driver appeared careless and drunk.

The force of the crash threw Vo onto the 4-meter high roof of a house 20 meters far from the accident.

The car didn't stop until it hit a lamp post and two concrete electricity poles and flipped over. The driver immediately fled the scene.

Vo and her brother Kien and her son Truong were on the way to visit her sick father in Son Tay Town when they were caught in the accident.

Thanh Nien found that the man surrendered to the police after he had been discharged from the hospital with an injury on his back.

Police are investigating the accident.
