Road crashes kill 6 in two districts

At least six people were killed in separate road accidents in two districts yesterday. In another accident, a schoolgirl lost her legs and two others suffered injuries when a rickshaw-van carrying them was hit by a pick-up van.

In Sirajganj, three bus passengers were killed and 19 others injured following a head-on collision between two buses on the Bangabandhu bridge west connecting road at Soydabad in sadar upazila yesterday afternoon, adds UNB.

The identities of the deceased could not be known while filing this report.

Shahid Alam, officer-in-charge of Bangabandhu Bridge West Police Station, said the accident took place around 4:45pm when a 'Hanif Paribahan' bus collided head-on with another bus.

In Gopalganj, three motorcycle riders were killed after their bike was hit by a train at Bhennabari level-crossing in the sadar upazila early yesterday, adds UNB.

Two of the deceased were identified as Raju Shikdar, 25, and Tanvir Chowdhury Rocky, 19, son of Quamrul Chowdhury of Mohammad Para. The identity of the third victim could not be known.

“Goplaganj-bound Tungipara Express train from Rajshahi hit the motorbike at night, killing three people on the spot,” said Mohammad Manirul Islam, officer-in-charge of Gopalganj Sadar Police Station.

Police recovered the bodies around 6:15am and sent them to the local sadar hospital for autopsy. Locals alleged that there was no gateman at the level-crossing. In another incident, a six-grade schoolgirl in Jashore lost a leg in a road crash at Navaron yesterday.

Sixth-graders Nipa, Rina and Saleha were injured after a pick-up van of Palli Bidyut Samity hit their school van on the Jashore-Benapole Highway. Nipa’s leg was severed on the spot.

The three, all 13-year-old, are students of Buruj Bagan High School. The pick-up van rammed into the school van carrying the students around 10am, said Mashiur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Sharsha Police Station. The injured were taken to a local hospital.

Agitated locals blocked the highway after the accident, halting vehicular movement.
