A 53-year-old pedestrian died after being hit by a Range Rover on the sidewalk of a street in Binh Thanh District, Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday afternoon. 

The car only stopped after crashing into a house.

The accident took place at around 2:00 pm on Tuesday, when a man in his 30s steered the Range Rover onto the sidewalk of Xo Viet Nghe Tinh Street and slammed into X., a 53-year-old local resident. 

The strong collision pushed X. into a roadside house and caused him serious injuries.
