HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — A van carrying 20 Singaporean students participating in a community service project crashed into a curb in central Vietnam on Monday, injuring 12, official media said.

The state-owned Tuoi Tre newspaper said two of the students, who were traveling to Bach Ma national park in Hue province, suffered leg and neck injuries respectively, but were not in critical condition. Others received minor injuries such as bruises.

The newspaper said that the students were treated at a provincial hospital, and all have been discharged except for the two with more serious injuries.
