A 45-year-old woman and her two daughters were crushed to death by an overloaded tipper on a busy section of the Ludhiana-Ferozepur national highway on Thursday morning.
The accident took place opposite the senior superintendent of police (SSP) office here.
The tipper (HP 31 B 0398), belonging to Continental Construction Projects Limited, was being reversed to unload the sand for construction of an over-bridge when Aruna Devi and her daughters, Savita (5) and Sarita (10), got crushed under it, resulting in instant death.
Tipper’s driver Gurcharan Singh, a resident of Ghal Khurd village in Ferozepur, said he didn’t see that the trio were behind the tipper.
