At least 11 people were killed and three others injured today in a collision between a bus and a van in central Bangladesh.

The bus collided with the van this morning in Narsingdi district, killing 11 passengers of the van, the DailyStar quoted the officer-in-charge of Belabo Police Station as saying.

The injured were taken to a nearby hospital, he said.

The mishap happened two days after 13 people were charred to death and 20 others injured in a head-on collision between a bus and a van hauling gas cylinders in Faridpur district.

Hundreds of people die in road accidents in Bangladesh every year. Bad roads and rash driving cause most of the accidents.
