Two people were killed in a collision between a speeding bus and a three-wheeler in Sreebardi upazila of Sherpur district early Wednesday, while 10 others were injured in the same event. 

The deceased were identified as three-wheeler helper Hamidullah, 26, son of late Mofiz Uddin of Boro poragor village under the Sreebardi upazila and bus passenger Golam Faruk, 50, son of Abdul Barek of nearby Jamalpur’s Bakshiganj upazila, reports UNB.

Sreebardi police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Kaium Khan Siddique said the bus of ‘Ma Moni Paribahan’ crashed into the three-wheeler coming from the opposite direction on Bhayadanga-Kurua road around 5 am, leaving the helper dead on the spot and 11 others injured.

The injured were rushed to Sherpur Sadar hospital where Faruk succumbed to his injuries and the rest were undergoing treatment, he said.

After the collision, the three-wheeler, locally used for transporting goods, plunged into a roadside ditch while the bus ploughed through a nearby house, the OC said.

The bus was seized but its driver managed to flee, he said, adding that a legal action will be taken.
