12 killed in two accidents

Special Correspondent

NAMAKKAL: Eight persons, seven of them from Karnataka, were killed on the spot and seven others were seriously injured when the van in which they were travelling rammed the rear of a stone-laden lorry near Paramathi village in the early hours of Monday.

The van, hired by the family of Manjunath and his wife, Ashwini, of Chamarajpet in Bangalore, was proceeding to Bangalore from Madurai. The van driver is among the dead, three of who are women, the police said.

The impact was such that nearly half of the van had rammed into the rear of the lorry, killing five including Manjunath and driver Navaneethan on the spot. Three others died on the way to the hospital. Police and Fire and Emergency Services personnel took nearly two hours to extricate the bodies from the wreckage.

According to the survivors, they had been on a pilgrimage to Rameshwaram, Kanyakumari and Madurai. They had booked train tickets for the return journey from Madurai. But they missed the train and hired the van.

The police identified the dead as Manjunath (38), Sasipoosan (65), Srinivasan (48), Rohini (46), Sankarrao (50), Savithri (46), Manjula (40) and Navaneethan (46).
