Back in July this year, at least nine people, including eight children, were killed and 15 others were injured when a pickup van collided with a mini truck in Uttar Pradesh's Hapur district. The accident took place near Sadikpur village under Hafizpur police station limits. The victims were returning to their village Salepur Kotla in the pickup van after attending a marriage on Bulandshahr road.
The mini-truck coming from the opposite direction had collided with the van which was carrying 20 children. The impact of the accident was so severe that the van was torn apart and its occupants were thrown out on the highway.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had expressed grief over the incident and directed officials to provide all possible help and treatment to the injured.
