In the early morning of December 22, local time, there was a car accident on Yamuna Highway in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. A car caught fire after colliding with a tanker, causing five people to be burned to death in the car.
Police said that the preliminary investigation was caused by the mistake in the steering of the truck.
Due to the failure to remove the central control door lock system of the passenger car in time, the passengers in the car failed to escape in time.
The website of New Delhi TV reported that after the incident, a worker at the Yamuna Expressway toll station called the police, and then the firefighters rushed to the scene, but when the fire was under control, all five passengers in the car died.
Police said that the truck driver fled the scene after the incident, and the police have now launched a search operation for him.
