A traffic accident occurred between a light truck and a one-way train in the south-central Vietnamese province of Binh Thuan on Thursday afternoon, with the truck driver dying en route to the hospital.

The light truck, driven by 39-year-old Nguyen Thanh Thao, was carrying rice straw when it collided with the SPT 1 train, from Phan Thiet City in province to Ho Chi Minh City, on a concreted road in Ham Thuan Bac District.

The truck was tossed during the collision and flipped over. 

Passers-by took driver Thao to the hospital for emergency treatment, but he died on the way.
