At least seven people were charred to death as their vehicle caught fire after colliding with a truck in India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh on Sunday night. 

Confirming the information, a local cop on Monday morning said that the accident took place in the state’s Unnao district, near the Lucknow-Agra
Expressway after one of the tyres of the speeding car burst and the driver lost control. 

As a result, the car collided with the truck coming from the opposite direction. Shortly after the collision, the vehicle caught fire and the occupants did not manage to come out.
