Two female students were killed after a collision with a truck on the way to school in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, located in southern Vietnam, on Thursday.

The accident occurred at around 6:30 am on My Xuan – Hoa Binh Street in Phu My Township.

The two victims were identified to be N.T.Y.N. and N.V.X.Q., who were 10th graders of the local Hac Dich High School.

According to surveillance camera footage, N. was driving a motorbike while Q. sat on the back seat.

Meanwhile, the truck, driven by 38-year-old N.V.D., was running in the same direction as their bike.

While trying to overtake the bike, D. slammed the truck’s side into the motorbike handlebar, causing the vehicle to fall and the two students to be run over by the truck’s rear wheels.
