A woman was killed and a man wounded following a collision between a Vietnam Post truck and a motorbike in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang on Sunday morning.

At 9:30 am on Sunday, Le Van Vo, 59, along with his sister Le Thi Cam Van, 65, were on their way to a relative’s funeral on a motorbike on National Highway 1 when a Vietnam Post express courier truck moving in the same direction slammed into their vehicle.

The siblings were trying to cross the roadway at the time, according to local residents.

The accident killed Van on the spot while Vo was severely injured and transferred to Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City for treatment.

The courier truck was operated by a 24-year-old driver from Chau Thanh District, Tien Giang, police said.

Police in Cai Be District of Tien Giang are investigating the accident.

Road crashes are a leading cause of death in Vietnam.

Nearly 6,800 accidents occurred in Vietnam in the first six months of 2020, killing more than 3,200 people and injuring over 4,900, according to the National Traffic Safety Committee.
