The accident happened at around 04:10 at section 46km+200 of Ha Nam Province, about 50km from Hanoi.

The strong crash caused the locomotive D19E-946 to derail and plunge into the ditch next to it. Another carriage close to the locomotive was also forced to separate from the train, lying horizontally on the tracks.

The accident also caused the lorry to overturn and deform. Timber pieces were littered onto the rail tracks.

Fortunately, there were no casualties in the accident.

The lorry was said to lose control and crash into the train. The exact cause of the derailment is under investigation.

The accident has impacted the trip schedule of other North-South trains departing from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
