Three people have been killed after a car rammed an autorickshaw in Tangail’s Kalihati Upazila.

The accident occurred on Friday morning on Bridge-11 on the Bangabandhu Bridge route of the Dhaka-Tangail Highway in the Upazila’s Hatia, said Bangabandhu Bridge East Police Station SI Md Noor-e-Alam Siddique.

One of the victims has been identified as 35-year-old autorickshaw driver Sobur Miah. The identities of the other two have yet to be confirmed.

The autorickshaw was headed from the Bangabandhu Bridge East area to Elenga, said SI Noor-e-Alam. The vehicle was then rammed by a car, killing the autorickshaw driver on the spot and injuring the two other passengers.
