Kolkata | Jagran News Desk: At least 18 people lost their lives while five others were injured after a matador car collided with a truck at the Nadia district in West Bengal on Saturday night, said the officials while adding that the accident was caused due to a “thick fog and the high speed of the vehicle”.

Throwing light on the incident, the officials said that the car was heading towards the Nabadeep crematorium from Bagda in North 24 Parganas to cremate a body. However, the car collided with a truck that was loaded with stones on the side of a road at Phulbari of Hanskhali police station area in Nadia, the officials added.

Those injured in the accident, the officials said, have been shifted to Shaktinagar district hospital.

West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar, meanwhile, has expressed grief over the incident, asking the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) government in West Bengal to provide immediate assistance to those injured in the accident.

“Deeply pained at the reported death of 18 people and 5 others injured in Nadia District after the vehicle they were travelling in collided with a truck parked on the side of the road,” Dhankhar was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
