One woman was killed on the spot with seven people injured in a car overturn on Myanmar's expressway on Wednesday, according to the Highway Police Office.
The accident took place on Nay Pyi Taw-Yangon expressway in early hours of Wednesday.
With nine people aboard, an Alphard car travelling from Mandalay to Mawlamyine lost control and overturned at milepost 100/2 of the expressway at 3:45 a.m. local time.
The highway accidents in Myanmar are mostly caused by human error - over speeding, negligent driving and drowsy driving and others - and defective vehicles and severe weather.
Meanwhile, Myanmar police force warned earlier this month of strictly abiding by traffic rules in driving during the upcoming countrywide traditional water festival which falls on April 13.
The police force cited the casualties in its press release as warning that there occurred 350 accidental cases during the water festival in 2018, in which 133 people died and 690 others were injured.
