Sirajganj, Jan 26: A truck ploughed into a roadside slum at Dwariarpur Pauro area under Shahjadpur Upazila on early Tuesday killed three of a family on the spot.

The deceased were identified as Abu Bakkar, 35, wife Azufa Begum, 30, and their son Sabbir, 6.

Police said the accident occurred when a molasses-laden truck from Jessore ploughed into a roadside house in the area as its driver lost control over the steering due to dense fog about 5:30 am, killing the trio on the spot.

Police recovered the bodies and sent those to Sirajganj Sadar Hospital morgue for autopsy.

The injured are being treated at local hospitals, said Shahjadpur police OC Rezaul Karim.

Around 5:30am, a loaded truck lost control on the Dariyapur-Dilruba Road and crashed into the slum beside the road, said the police officer.
