Three of the deceased were Class 10 students, and two separate road incidents in Odisha regrettably claimed the lives of all four people involved. The youngsters were riding their bikes home from class when they collided with a truck in the Cuttack area. Due to the severity of the hit, two students were pronounced dead when they arrived at the Banki government hospital. A third student was sent to SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack, but sadly passed away from his injuries there as well.
A guy, his sister-in-law, and her daughter were riding a scooter back from a family event when a speeding truck struck it in the Kalahandi district. Tragically, the young girl perished in the tragedy, and the injured were taken to the government hospital in Dharamgarh right away. Investigations into both accidents are ongoing, and actions are being taken to find the at-fault truck drivers.
