The truck driver careened towards a rickshaw and pedestrians when he lost control of his vehicle

Two people, including a rickshaw puller and a pedestrian, have been killed by a sand-bearing truck that ran them over in Ashulia.

The accident occurred in the Itkhola area near the Abdullahpur-Baipail Highway on Friday morning.

Three others were also injured in the accident.

Among the deceased is Mousumi Akhter, 22, a pedestrian; while the injured are Zaher Ali, 60; Chandu Bibi, 65; and Farhad Ali, 25.

According to locals and police, the truck lost control and careened toward a rickshaw and the pedestrians beside the road; leaving the rickshaw puller dead on spot.

Acting on  a tip-off, police went to the site and brought the dead body to the station.

The injured were then taken to the Centre for Women and Child Health (CWCH) in Ashulia, where Mousumi was declared dead. Later, the injured were sent to Dhaka’s National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedic Rehabilitation (NITOR) because their health had worsened, CWCH duty doctor Dr SK Abu Zafar said.

Ashulia police station Inspector (Officer-in-Charge of Investigation) Javed Masud said: “The bodies are being kept at Dhaka’s Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital morgue for autopsy.

“We have impounded the truck responsible for the accident, although the driver managed to escape. We are preparing to file a case regarding the incident.”
