An 18-year-old girl in Ho Chi Minh City was killed Sunday after a seven-seat car rammed into five other vehicles and knocked down a house's wall.

At around 4:30 p.m., a 50-year-old man was driving the seven-seat car on Nguyen Van Tang Street, in the direction from the Vinhomes Grand Park urban area to the Hanoi Highway in Thu Duc City. When he reached an intersection, the car collided with two other cars running from the opposite direction, then rammed into three motorbikes, two on the road and one parked on the sidewalks.

The seven-seat car continued to knock down a wall of a beverage stall before stopping. The series of impacts killed the 18-year-old girl on a motorbike, who was a college student, and injured two other people.

All the vehicles were damaged after the accident. Nguyen Van Tang Street got congested due to the commotions.

Tung, the owner of the house the car rammed into, said its driver walked out of the vehicle with tiredness on his face and showed signs of using alcohol. The driver had been taken to a police station by locals.

The driver told the police that he previously collided with a car, and so could not control his speed properly. Police have tested him for alcohol and drugs, and results have yet to be announced.
