A man was fatally hit by a truck after riding his motorbike on an expressway meant only for four-wheel vehicles in southern Vietnam.
Preliminary information showed that the truck was traveling along the Ho Chi Minh City - Trung Luong Expressway at around 10:20 pm on Sunday.
After reaching Thanh Duc Commune in Ben Luc District, Long An Province, the truck collided with a motorbike running in the opposite direction.
The crash caused the motorcyclist to fall on the ground and die on the spot.
