Six killed in Chittagong road accidents
Two people were killed and seven others injured after a human hauler overturned on a busy road in Chittagong City’s custom intersection area on Thursday morning. “Two people died on the spot. Police rescued the injured and sent them to the hospital with the help of locals,” said Bandar police station’s OC Moinul Islam. The deceased include the human hauler's assistant, 17-year-old Md Rakib from Patuakhali, and 48-year-old Md Ekhlachur Rahaman Amjad, a worker at Merimo Ltd of Chittagong EPZ. The accident took place around 8am, when the vehicle carrying over 12 people overturned on the road in front of Bandar Officer's Colony, after the driver lost control over the steering wheel. Locals said, a few years ago, a Chittagong Port Authority official's wife was killed in a road accident at the same spot. Chittagong City Corporation installed a speed breaker there at the time, but just removed it a few days ago. In a separate incident, at least four people were killed and 10 others injured in a road collision among two pick-up vans and a bus on the Chittagong-Cox’s Bazar Highway in Chandanaish upazila on Thursday evening. Md Farhad, assistant superintendent of Highway Police of Comilla Zone, told the Dhaka Tribune: “Two pick-up vans raced each other on the highway when a Cox’s Bazar-bound Hanif bus rammed into them, leaving five people critically injured.” The deceased are 45-year-old Farid Uddin, 17-year-old Nayon Tara, 65-year-old Hazera Khatun and 35-year-old Alamin, said police and local hospital sources. “The accident took place at Koshaipara Pathanipul area on the Chittagong-Cox’s Bazar Highway under Chandanaish upazila around 4:30pm.” he added. “Locals rushed the victims to Dohazari Health Complex in critical condition,” said the health complex's Dr Debasish Chowdhury, adding that other victims were shifted to Chittagong Medical College Hospital for treatment. Following the accident, traffic movement was halted for half an hour on the highway.
