HCM CITY (VNS) — A member of a motorbike escort group for the Binh Duong Open International Women's Bike Race died yesterday after being hit by a motorbike tour group.

The racers started their second round yesterday morning from Dinh Quan District in Dong Nai Province to Bao Loc District in Lam Dong Province. The escort group was travelling along with the racers at a speed of about 40km per hour.

Reports say a group of seven motorbikes then tried to pass the escort group at high speed.

One of the group then collided with a member of the escort group, breaking the escort driver's leg. Another member of the group, Lin Ma Sang, fell off his motorbike and was hit by another motorbike. He died on the spot. — VNS
