Karanjia: In a tragic road mishap, at least three persons were killed on the spot as a speeding motorcycle on which they were travelling rammed into the rear of a trailer truck near Dari on NH-49 under Karanjia police limits in Mayurbhanj district, today.
Some locals noticed this and immediately informed Karanjia police about it. On being informed, Karanjia police reached the accident site and seized the bodies and sent them to a nearby health facility for post-mortem.
