Two killed by road crash in Thakurgaon

Two people were killed and five persons injured in a road accident on Thakurgaon-Dhaka highway at Jagannathpur in Thakurgaon Sadar upazila on Tuesday night.

The deceased were identified as Masiran Nesa (105), wife of late Abdur Rashid of Dalua village under Birganj upazila in Dinajpur; and Rahman (25), son of Mohammad Hanif of Chakhaldi village, Thakurgaon, said police.

The accident occurred at around 9:30pm when a Dhaka-bound bus collided head-on with a battery-run auto-rickshaw, Thakurgaon Police Station Officer-in-Charge Tanvirul Islam told The Daily Star.

All the victims were in the auto-rickshaw, said the OC, adding that Masiran died on the spot.

On information, police and fire fighters rushed to the spot and took the injured -- identified as Nasima Khatun (40), Amena Khatun (80), Anwara Begum (60), Sajeeb (30) and Gopal (25) from Chakhaldi village -- to Thakurgaon Sadar Hospital.

Police seized the bus but its driver and his helper managed to flee the scene.

Highway police filed a case with Maidandighi Highway Police Station in this connection, OC said.
