Two women were thrown off an overpass in the central province of Thanh Hoa on Monday and died after their motorbike was hit heads-on by a car.

Nguyen Thi Lan Anh and Dam Thi Van, both 24, were riding a motorbike up Phu Son overpass in Thanh Hoa when a five-seat car encroached on the opposite direction and crashed into them.

The collision threw the women onto the ground around 5 m below. Both died of severe injuries.

Initial investigation suggested that the car was to blame. The car driver, Nguyen Quy Giap, 40, tested negative for alcohol.

Phu Son is one of the busiest overpasses in Thanh Hoa.
