The accident has caused a downtown road to be shut for one and a half hour.

Part of a Ho Chi Minh City downtown street was closed for traffic on Tuesday after a truck slammed into the height limit bar under a bridge and got stuck there, making two people injured.

The truck was running on a District 1 street when it hit the two-meter height bar under a bridge on Tuesday morning. The steel bar was uprooted and held up the vehicle, right above the head of the driver.

Both he and his assistant suffered many scratches, An Ninh Thu Do news website reported.

The street was only cleared at around 10:30 a.m., after one and a half hours, the report said.
