LUCKNOW: A speeding trailer crushed three men to death in Madanpura area of Deoria on Friday morning.
The deceased were identified as Paras Pandey (50), Sunil Kumar (45) and Gauri (65). Trailer driver Mukesh Kumar also got injured and is undergoing treatment at the hospital. Police have detained him for questioning.
SP Deoria, Sankalp Sharma, told TOI that the trailer laden with boulders was going to Rudrapur when its driver lost control over the steering at Barau crossing in Madanpura around 7.30am.
“It first crushed cyclist Paras and then ran over Sunil and Gauri who were sitting around a bonfire and finally rammed into the residence of a businessman Ashok Madhesia,” said Sharma. The domino effect of the crash led to cracks in the walls of Ashok’s house. The family rushed outside thinking it to be an earthquake but instead spotted the truck stuck in their compound. They immediately informed the police. Bodies of the three victims were taken out from the mangled trailer and sent to the district hospital for postmortem.
“Prima facie it appears that the driver either dozed off or the vehicle went out of control,” said the SP.
