One Killed After Pick-Up Van Falls Into Canal In Odisha

13 August 2019


Mayurbhanj: A person was killed after a rice-laden pick-up van fell into a canal near Balidiha chowk in Baripada of Mayurbhanj district on Tuesday.

The deceased have been identified as Panchu Mohapatra (23), a resident of Dhanpur.

Reportedly, the pick-up van was transporting rice meant for mid-day meal from the CWC Godown at Station Bazar to a local school.

As the road was damaged in recent rain, the van went out of control and skidded off the road into the canal.

While Panchu died on the spot, three others escaped with minor injuries. Later, fire brigade personnel reached the spot and recovered Panchu's body.
