Rajasthan: One child, two women among 5 killed in Churu accident | Jaipur News

JAIPUR: Five people, including a child and two women, were killed in an accident in Churu’s Sujangarh police station area around 8.15am on Monday. While three persons died on the spot, two others succumbed to injuries at a hospital.
The deceased have been identified as Sada Kanwar (50), Rajpal Singh (40), Nishu Kanwar (30), Bhumi Kanwar (2) and their driver Mahipal Shekhawat (35).
Sujangarh circle officer Narendra Kumar Sharma said, “The car collided with a truck when the heavy vehicle was trying to overtake it. There were a total of five people in the car and all of them were killed.”
Truck driver fled from the spot
Police said the five were returning from Khetri near Jhunjhunu.
“Prima facie it appears that it was the fault of the truck driver who tried to overtake the car on the wrong side. As the truck was 18-feet long, there were no chances that the passengers of the car could have survived the impact. While three died on the spot, two were taken to a hospital where they also succumbed to injuries,” added the official. The truck driver fled from the spot. The circle officer added, “We have seized the truck as the driver fled from the spot, leaving the vehicle behind. We have the registration number and will track him down soon.”

CM Ashok Gehlot expressed his condolences. “The news of the road accident in Sujangarh is very tragic in which five people have lost their lives. My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families. May God give them the strength to bear the loss,” Gehlot tweeted.
