Da Nang- Quang Ngai expressway congested as truck tire explodes

A truck with a flat tire this afternoon slammed into a balcony inside Nui Eo tunnel, Duy Xuyen District of Quang Nam Province before it rotated 90 degrees causing over two-kilometer-long traffic congestion.  

According to initial information, the accident occurred at the Km22+950 section in the tunnel at around 2 p.m. as the vehicle was moving south on Da Nang- Quang Ngai expressway. 

The collision resulted in front-end damage from a head-on impact with the balcony in the tunnel. A wheel fell off the truck.

Additionally, around 15 meter long handrail section was damaged from the collision. 

By 5:30 p.m. on the same day, small automobiles were able to slowly travel through the tunnel.
