Three passengers were killed and dozens others were seriously injured when the bus they were travelling in lost control and skidded into a ditch before overturning near Bilsuri village under Secunderabad police station of Bulandshahr on Tuesday.
According to reports, the bus started from Bulandshahr depot and was headed to Ghaziabad along NH 91 when the driver while trying to save an onrushing car sharply swerved to the side and in the process lost control over the wheel. As a result, the bus skidded into a ditch and overturned.

Other than the three passengers who died, many farmers who were working in paddy fields at the time, were also seriously injured after being crushed under the bus. Senior Superintendent of Police in Bulandshahr, Santosh Kumar Singh, reached the spot and visited the injured at the hospital.
