In Uttar Pradesh’s Shahjahanpur, a truck crash resulted in 11 deaths and 10 injuries when the vehicle collided with a parked bus and overturned on it. The truck, loaded with stone ballast, struck the bus carrying over a dozen pilgrims. The accident occurred late Saturday night on the Gola Bypass road in the Khutar Police station area. The private bus, traveling from Sitapur to Purnagiri, had stopped at a dhaba in Shahjahanpur when the truck hit and overturned on it, crushing the pilgrims to death.

Women and children make up most of the victims. Rescue teams, working for nearly three hours, pulled several bodies from under the truck. Visuals showed them using a crane to move rubble and extract pilgrims crushed beneath the truck.

Shahjahanpur Superintendent of Police Ashok Kumar Meena told India Today that they received information around 11:30 pm about a truck loaded with stone ballast hitting a bus parked near a dhaba on Gola Bypass road and then overturning on it. Some people were at the dhaba eating, while others were sitting inside the bus. The accident resulted in 11 casualties and 10 injuries. The rescue team has pulled out all the bodies and is informing the victims’ families.

Medical personnel have admitted all the injured people to a medical college, where they are receiving treatment. Police have launched an investigation into the incident.
