Truck collided with ST bus in Maharashtra; 22 killed

Jalgaon (Maharashtra): At least 22 people were killed and 25 others injured when a container truck collided with a state transport bus on Thursday near Chalisgaon, in Jalgaon district of northern Maharashtra, an official said.

“The accident occurred around 1.30 P.M. when the speeding container truck rammed into the stationary bus of the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC),” said Deputy Superintendent of Police Keshav P.

“So far, we have information about 22 deaths in the Chalisgaon civil hospital… Other injured victims have been rushed to hospitals in neighbouring towns, including Dhule,” Keshav added.

According to eyewitness accounts, the intensity of the accident was so powerful that the container spliced the bus in the middle, resulting in the high number of casualties.
