In Barabanki, four members of a family perished when a SUV collided with a truck on Wednesday. The four members of the family were heading to Lucknow from Ayodhya and they had hired a driver for the transit. Apparently the driver dozed off midway and two sheep suddenly appeared on the road. Desperately attempting to save the livestock, the sleepy driver suddenly swerved to his right and in the process hit the road divider before colliding with a truck coming from the opposite direction.

The impact of the collision was so intense that a JCB had to be called to extricate the bodies and send them for autopsy.

The deceased were identified as Haider Ali, Shafiq, Amir and Anees of Lucknow.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath expressed grief over the deaths.
