A man and his wife were killed, while their minor daughter was injured after a dumper truck carrying gravel overturned on their car in southwest Delhi's RK Puram area, police said on Thursday.

The accident took place on the Ring Road around midnight.

After receiving information, police reached the spot and found that three people were stuck in the car.

A fire brigade team was called, but the heavy dumper couldn't be removed. Thereafter, a hydraulic crane was ordered to rescue the injured, Deputy Commissioner of Police (southwest) Gaurav Sharma said.

Manish Sharma and wife Shipra were shifted to AIIMS hospital, where they succumbed to their injuries. Their six-year-old daughter was rescued safely, the DCP said.

The driver of the dumper truck escaped from the spot. A case was registered and a police team sent to apprehend the accused, Sharma said. PTI
