Around 5 am on July 6th, on the National Highway No.1, crescent road to Ha Tinh City, the part through Thach Linh Ward, an accident between a lorry and a container truck caused one dead and two injured.
Upon arriving in Thach Linh Ward, the 39-year-old driver Tran Quoc Toan’s North-South lorry (from in Hung Yen City, Hung Yen Province) suddenly hit directly with the container truck driven by the 35-year-old driver Ho Quang Tung (from Dien Chau district, Nghe An province) to the opposite direction.
At the scene, the lorry front was completely deformed, and the container truck front was seriously damaged. The lorry driver Tran Quoc Toan and his 38-year-old assistant Trinh Huy Tung (from Hung Yen province) were stuck in the cabin.
Ha Tinh city law enforcement officials cooperated with the local residents to take 3 trapped people to the hospital for emergency care. However, the injury was too severe, and the truck driver Tran Quoc Toan died.
The accident caused traffic congestion. The traffic police had to direct the other vehicles to other routes to relieve the congestion and coordinated with relevant departments to investigate the cause of the accident.
