3 killed as lorry overturns on pothole-riddled road in Chittagong

Three people have been killed as a container lorry overturned and rammed a CNG-run auto-rickshaw on Nimtola Biswa road in Bandar thana of Chittagong, UNB reports.

 

The deceased are driver of the auto-rickshaw and two of its passengers.

 

Details could not be known immediately as rescue operation was still underway.

 

Mainul Hasan, officer-in-charge of Bandar Police Station, said the lorry turned turtle as its driver lost control over the steering for pothole-riddled road and rammed the three-wheeler around 11:00 am on Sunday, leaving three people dead on the spot.

 

The death toll from the accident may rise as the auto-rickshaw remained pinned under the container lorry, the OC added.
