At least three people were killed in a head-on collision between a CNG-run auto-rickshaw and an oil tanker lorry near Faridganj Upazila Health Complex in Chandpur Tuesday morning.

The deceased were identified as Md Jahangir, 40, the CNG-run auto-rickshaw driver from Raipur upazila, Ruma Begum, 30, of Charbarali village in Faridganj and Mamun, 35, of Sholla village of the upazila.

Faridganj police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Md Shahid Hossain said the accident took place around 7:45am on the Chandpur-Faridganj-Raipur Regional Highway.

The driver of the lorry carrying oil tankers lost control of the vehicle after one of its tires exploded suddenly and the lorry collided head-on with the auto-rickshaw coming from the opposite side, he added.

Both the vehicles overturned and skidded into a roadside canal.

Locals whisked the injured persons off to Faridganj Upazila Health Complex where the on-duty doctor declared Jahangir and Ruma Begum dead.

Doctor Subrata Saha confirmed the matter saying: “They died before they were brought to our hospital.”

Another injured Mamun was sent to Chandpur Sadar Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds later.

The accident halted road communication for some time.

Upon receiving the news, the local police rushed to the spot and normalized the traffic movement.
