Two people were killed when a speeding pickup van crashed into a three-wheeler on the Dhaka-Chattogram highway near Suagazi in Cumilla Sadar upazila (South) early on Wednesday.

The deceased were identified as three-wheeler driver Jamil Mia, 32, son of Hanif Mia of Vatpara village of the upazila, and pedestrian Fazal Mia, 30, son of Lal Mia of the same upazila.

Police said the Chattogram-bound pickup van crashed into the three-wheeler after its driver lost control of the vehicle near Suagazi in the morning, leaving both the victims dead on the spot.

Anisur Rahman, officer-in-charge of Mainamati Highway Police, said they seized the van. But its driver managed to flee the scene.

“The bodies have been brought to the police station,” the OC said.
