Two women on a motorcycle were killed after running a red light and crashing into a tipper truck in the northern Vietnamese province of Hung Yen on Sunday, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

The accident took place at the intersection of National Highway No. 38B and Provincial Highway No. 386 in Tran Cao Town, according to preliminary information.

Bui Thi Thao, 27, was carrying Thai Thi Nguyen, 52, on a motorbike when she ran a red light at the intersection and slammed into the side of the tipper truck driven by 51-year-old Doan Ngoc Thang.

Thao was killed on the spot, while Nguyen succumbed to her serious injuries at the hospital.
