Hanoi: Nine people were killed when a truck
transporting wood overturned on Wednesday in a mountainous district
in central Vietnam, an official said.

The men were travelling in the vehicle when it flipped
over, crushing them under its load.

Six other people were being treated for injuries,
including the driver, said Nghe An provincial official Vi Duc
Hoai.

"Police are investigating. We think that heavy rains
which made the road slippery might have contributed to the
accident," Hoai said.
