Another food delivery rider has died overnight after being hit by a truck at Redfern.
The accident occurred just two days after Uber Eats rider Bijoy Paul, 27, a Bangladash national, was fatally injured at Rockdale.
It is the fifth death involving a food delivery driver in Australia in the last two months. Four of the tragedies have been in Sydney.
The Transport Workers’ Union is demanding government action.
In the latest case, the rider died at the scene after being struck by a truck carrying an excavator at the intersection of Chalmers and Cleveland streets about 6.40pm on Monday.
The driver of the truck – a man in his 30s – was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital for mandatory testing.
The police Crash Investigation Unit is investigating.
Police have asked anyone with information or dashcam vision to call the unit via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
