A man was killed and another sustained injuries as a pick-up van hit a roadside tree in Old Dhaka’s Nawabpur area on Thursday.

The deceased was identified as Subhash, 40, and the injured is Monir Hossain, 36. Both worked for a construction company as labourers, reports UNB.

The accident occurred around afternoon. Locals rescued both of them in critical condition and rushed to Sir Salimullah Medical College Hospital. Later their employer took them to Dhaka Medical College Hospital where the doctors announced Subhash dead at 8:30pm and referred Monir to National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation.
