The unidentified woman's next of kin has been notified and investigations will continue into the accident, reports the Daily Mail.

Back in February 2014, a British man was killed after his quad bike was hit by a truck in Australia.

Scott Thompson, 27, a former soldier from Nelson in Lancashire, had been travelling the world with his girlfriend Sami Allott, also 27.

Police said he was hit when he pulled out into the path of the lorry near Bungador, Victoria, where he had been working on a farm.
