Two were killed on the spot
Three people were killed and two others injured when a pickup van crashed into a stationary truck on the Netoakona-Mymensingh Highway in Netrokona's Sadar upazila in the early hours of Saturday.
The deceased were identified as Rony Mia, 20, Tofazzal Mia, 14, and Abu Chan Mia, 28.
Police said the accident occurred at 2:45am when the Gazipur-bound fish-laden pickup van rammed the sand-laden truck parked along the highway in the Chalissha Bagra Bazar area.
"The crash was the result of the van driver losing control of the speeding vehicle. While two fish traders were killed on the spot, three others sustained injuries," said Netrakona model police OC Khandaker Shaker Ahmed.
The injured were taken to Mymensingh Medical College Hospital, where Chan Mia was declared dead on arrival.
"A probe has been ordered into the accident," the OC said.
