Another incident of over-speeding claimed two lives on the Rajdhanwar -Saria Road on Friday. Two youths travelling in a car were killed on the spot after the car collided head-on with a private bus at Nimatard  Road crossing under Saria police station area on Friday morning. The deceased youths were identified as Rohit Sharma and Suraj Sharma, who were returning home at Dumari after purchasing sweets from Rajdhanwar.

There were stains of blood on the road as the bodies were brought out from the mangled four-wheeler by the police.

The car was travelling along the Rajdhanwar-Saria Road, while the Parivartan bus was coming from the Kolkata and heading towards Barmasia. Locals said both the vehicles were travelling at high speed. “The car was overtaking another vehicle when the bus from the opposite end came in front of it.

The bus driver couldn’t slam the brakes on time and hit the car head-on towards its right where the driver sits. As a result, the car was completely smashed and the bus skidded on the road before hitting a lamppost. The bus driver then managed to escape,” said a witness.
