The driver, Nguyen Van Tam, 44, was slightly injured.

At around 7.45 a.m. the 25-seat bus was traveling from the Suoi Tien Tourist Area in District 9 to the neighboring province of Dong Nai when Tam lost control of the vehicle.

The fall left the vehicle's front portion smashed. The accident caused a major traffic jam that lasted more than two hours.
