At least eight people were killed and four others injured as a truck hit a three-wheeler at Shailkupa in Jhenaidah this evening. 

Initially, the identities of the deceased could not be known. 

Witnesses said some construction workers were going to Jhenaidah from Kushtia by Nasiman, a locally-made three-wheeler, hit by a cement-laden truck leaving eight of its passengers dead on the spot. The truck also fell into the road-side ditch. Police and fire service reached the spot and rescued the injured and sent them to Sadar Hospital.

Among the four injured, two are in critical state. Vehicular movement on the Kushtia-Jhenaidah highway has been suspended since the accident.

Police said that eight bodies were recovered from the spot while the injured four were taken to hospitals in a critical state.
