The vehicle was heading to Ho Chi Minh City from Binh Dinh province when it took a sharp swerve at high speed and overturned - probably due to heavy rain, police said.
It reportedly dragged on for about 50m.
41 injured passengers were taken to Ninh Thuan General Hospital for emergency treatment.
Local authorities have donated VND1 million (US$50) to each family of the perished and VND500,000 to each injured victim.
