A traffic officer was killed and another injured when their bike collided with a truck that they were trying to stop in the northern province of Bac Ninh on Tuesday, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

At around 1 a.m. that day, a group of traffic officers found a truck driven by Nguyen Van Thuy, 28, suspicious, so they ordered to him pull over.

But, the man ignored the order.

Sergeant-major Tran Dang Vi, 27, then rode a motorbike together with Corporal Nguyen Khac Anh to chase Thuy, the report said.

When the officers passed the truck and signaled him to stop, the vehicle crashed into their bike.

Vi succumbed several minutes after he was admitted to the hospital, while Anh was in shock, the news agency reported.

The truck driver has been taken into custody for investigations.
