4 killed as van collides with truck in Tamil Nadu

Four people were killed on the spot when the van in which they were travelling collided with a container truck at Thuvariman village under Nagamalai Pudukottai police station limits here today.

The deceased were occupants of the ill-fated van. The mishap occurred after the police diverted the vehicular traffic into a narrow road from the four-lane in view of violent incidents that took place in parts of Madurai, marking the 54th death anniversary of Dalit leader Immanuel Sekharan.

The van collided with the truck which was coming in the opposite direction, killing all the four occupants.

The bodies were removed to the Government Rajaji Hospital here. Police have registered a case and are investigating.
