A woman and her daughter were killed while her son was seriously injured after they were hit by a truck in the north-central Vietnamese province of Nghe An on Sunday.

The woman was carrying her two children on a motorbike along N5 Street in Nghi Loc District, Nghe An Province at around 10:00 am, according to traffic police officers.

The motorcycle then collided with a truck operated by Nghe An-based Thuy Danh cement company.

The three family members fell off the motorbike and were run over by the truck.

They were rushed to the hospital by local residents, but the woman and her daughter succumbed to their critical injuries.

Her son is still receiving treatment for his serious injuries at the Nghe An Friendship General Hospital.

N5 Street stretches 30 kilometers from Hoa Son Commune, Do Luong District to Nghi Thiet Commune, Nghi Loc District in Nghe An.

Costing over VND1.2 trillion (US$52.2 million), the route was opened to traffic in April 2017.

A lot of traffic accident hot spots have been recorded along this street, with local residents referring to it as the 'road of death.'
