One person has been killed, and 34 others injured in a bus-truck collision on Khulna-Mongla highway in Rampal area under Khulna district. 

The deceased was identified as Md Javed Mir, 35, a resident of the Dalmil intersection area of Khulna city.

Speaking to the Dhaka Tribune, older brother of the victim, Md Liton Mir said: “Javed was driving a truck carrying cement from Mongla to Khulna Friday night. 

“While driving, his visibility was hampered by the storm, causing his truck to collide head on with a bus, while avoiding a broken tree branch. He suffered a broken leg. Locals rescued him and took him a private hospital in Khulna. He died of his injuries around 11pm the same night.”

Responding to a query, Rampal police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Sheikh Lutfor Rahman said: “The bus-truck collision took place at the Belai Bridge area around 7:45pm on Friday. A tree branch, broken by the storm, was blocking the highway.

“Both the bus and the truck drivers lost control of their vehicles while trying to avoid the debris on the road, and collided head-on. A total of 35 people, including bus driver Rafiq and truck driver Javed got injured.”

The victims were then taken to different healthcare facilities including the Khulna Medical College Hospital. Some of them are in critical condition, the OC said.
