2 trains hit a truck within a gap of minutes

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The rail communication between capital and other parts of the country disrupted for about two hours as two passenger trains hit a truck within a gap of minutes at Maghbazar wireless gate level crossing in the city yesterday. No one was injured in the incident. A witness said, “Kamalapur-bound Upaban Express from Sylhet hit the truck around 5am first and it was left on one of the railway tracks in the area blocking the way. The train pushed the truck over to another rail line next to the first one”. Then a few minutes later another train, Mymensingh-bound Balaka Express came from the opposite direction of Kamalapur and hit the same truck. The wreckage of the truck was not removed from the tracks for nearly two hours causing the rail communication to remain halted.

Rail communication resumed around 7am after authorities removed the damaged truck from the rail tracks.Yasin Faruk, officer-in- charge (OC) of Dhaka Railway Police Station confirmed the incident and said, “No one was hurt in the accident. The truck reportedly broke down right on the rail tracks before the accident took place.”
