8 killed in Tangail road crash
24 December 2014, Nirapad News : Eight people dead in a road crash due to head-on collision between a truck and a passenger vehicle in Tangail’s Madhupur at around 12:15pm today in the Upazila’s Raktipara area. All of the victims were in the passenger vehicle and four among the eight were members of a family.
Police identified the four family members as Habibur Rahman, 50, his wife Jahanara Begum, 42, and their daughters ‘Hena’, 30, and ‘Ayesha’, 12. But they couldn’t identify the rest.
A rashly-driven Madhupur-bound truck slammed into the three-wheeled vehicle that rushed in from the other side, killing three on the spot while the others succumbed to their injuries and died on their way to the local health centre. Locals rescued some of the injured people and admitted them to the Madhupur Upazila Health Centre. The driver and helper of the truck fled immediately after the crash.
