The ferry passengers said the ferry left Faridpur from Shimulia Ghat in Munshiganj for Majhikandi Ghat around 2:30 pm on Sunday. The ferry collided with the pole of the Payra Thermal Power Plant in the middle of the river Padma Bridge. A large part of the front of a hearse ambulance near the lid of the ferry was broken.
