Two young men were detained in southern Vietnam Sunday on suspicion they caused the motorbike of a traffic police officer who was chasing them to crash fatally.

Phan Quang Trung, 24, allegedly obstructed the motorbike of Second Lieutenant Tong Phuoc Ngo, 27, on Friday night in Hau Giang Province, while Pham Tan Tai, 19, kicked the handlebars, causing the officer to fall off and hit the sidewalk.

Ngo died on the way to hospital with severe brain injuries,said other officers on the patrol with him in Phung Hiep District that night.

News website VnExpress quoted Nguyen Hoang Phi, police chief of the district, as saying that Ngo had signaled the two suspects to stop since they were speeding, but they drove even faster in an attempt to escape.

He gave chase and had the fatal mishap two kilometers later.
