Three people were killed in a head-on collision between a bus and a microbus on the Dhaka-Sylhet highway in Narsingdi on Thursday morning.

The identities of the deceased could not be known immediately.

The accident occurred around 4am when the Dhaka-bound ‘Unique Paribahan’ bus crashed into the Sylhet-bound microbus on the high-speed corridor in Marjal Tarabag of the district’s Raipura upazila, police said.

“The crash left the microbus driver and two other occupants of the vehicle dead on the spot,” said Abdul Khalek, officer-in-charge (investigation) of Bhairab Highway Police Station.

On information, cops rushed to the spot and sent them to the local hospital morgue for post-mortem. “A probe has been ordered into the accident,” the OC said.
