The most recent stats I could find say that traffic accidents are the leading cause of death in Vietnam, with 12,000 deaths in 2006. See this article for a personal account: http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2006/12/16/asia/AS_GEN_Vietnam_Traffic_Accidents.php

Hmm...that article does say it is the leading cause of death, but this WHO profile

http://www.who.int/whosis/mort/profiles/mort_wpro_vnm_vietnam.pdf

says that it's heart disease, with 66,000 deaths per year.

WHO certainly seems more trustworthy! Looks like they do agree on the number of deaths at 12,000 though.
