The car allegedly ran into the wrong lane, killing two teachers from a local school.

Two female teachers were killed in a crash involving a car carrying blue government license plates on Saturday in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak.

The accident happened while officials from Dak Lak's People’s Committee were visiting a village in Krong Nang District ahead of Lunar New Year, Tuoi Tre Newspaper reported on Sunday.

There were no leaders from the provincial government in the car when the incident took place on a road in Cu M’gar District, the daily quoted Bui Hong Quy, chief of staff at the office of the Dak Lak People’s Committee, as saying.

Initial investigations show that the car had swerved into the wrong lane.

In Vietnam, blue plates are only granted to cars used by government agencies and officials.
