A 48-year-old woman was killed and her 16-year-old son injured after a truck hit them in Dhaka's Turag early Sunday, police said.
The deceased Ambia Begum was from Matlab Uttar, Chandpur.
"A truck hit my mother and Mohiuddin from behind, leaving them critically injured, as we were crossing the road to catch a bus," Shamsuddin said.
The mother and son were rushed to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) where Ambia was declared dead at 9am, said Inspector Bachhu Miah, in-charge of DMCH Police Camp. "The body was kept in the hospital morgue for an autopsy."
Mohiuddin is out of danger now and receiving treatment at DMCH, Bachhu added.
