The driver of a tipper was killed on the spot when the vehicle he was driving collided with a stone-loaded truck parked on the roadside on National Highway 54 near Bagrian village here on Tuesday. The deceased has been identified as Angrej Singh (25) of Khehra village in Gurdaspur district.

The victim was going to Ferozepur in the sand-filled tipper. After taking refreshment at a dhaba in Bagrian village he had covered a few yards away when his tipper rammed the rear of the stationary truck parked on the road. He was lone in the tipper.

Nearby residents reached the spot and worked hard to pull him out of the driver seat as the front portion of his tipper had compacted within.

He was dead when he was pulled out of the tipper.

ASI Kanwaljit Singh, investigating officer in the case, reached the site and took the body into their custody. The body was sent to the local Civil Hospital for a postmortem.

Balwinder Singh, father of the victim, said his son’s wife was pregnant and staying at her parents’ house. The marriage of the victim’s sister was fixed to be solemnised in near future, he added.
