The driver of a Range Rover was severely injured while the girl traveling with him died when their luxury SUV crashed into a trailer truck on the Saigon Bridge at dawn on Sunday.
The rear-ending crash occurred in the middle of the bridge, when the SUV was speeding from Binh Thanh District toward District 2, according to eyewitnesses.
Neither of the drivers was identified by police.
The Range Rover repeatedly rolled on its sides following the crash before hitting the bridge’s side.
The SUV body was torn apart, its front wheel fell off while other broken parts were scattered across the bridge.
The Range Rover driver was rushed to hospital in critical conditions, whereas the girl traveling with him died on the spot.
The woman was thrown out of the car when it slid about ten meters away from the point of crash.
Traffic on the bridge was only cleared on the early morning of the same day.
