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.

A team of traffic police officers, in coordination with the expressway management unit, later arrived at the site to identify the victim, investigate the accident, and control the traffic.

Stretching 62 kilometers, the Ho Chi Minh City - Trung Luong Expressway connects the southern metropolis with Tien Giang Province in the Mekong Delta.

The minimum and maximum speeds for vehicles are 60km per hour and 120km per hour, respectively.

Motorcycles are not allowed on the expressway.
