A woman who was chasing after two motorbike-borne thieves in Ba Ria town Monday was run over by a truck after being possibly kicked off balance by the thieves.

Nghi, the owner of a coffee shop in the area, said it happened when Le Thi Ngoc Thao, 28, rode her motorbike after the thieves who had grabbed her handbag for some 100 meters when she lost balance and fell on the street.

A truck coming in the opposite direction ran over her and killed her on the spot, he added.

Tran Thi Ve, who was in the truck, said she and the truck driver, N.K.T., 48, saw Thao riding toward them at high speed.

"I'm not sure if the young man on the motorbike kicked her bike, but I saw him raise his leg," she said.

T. had tried to avoid her but could not, she said.

The police are investigating.
