Two of the workers were declared ‘brought dead’ at KIMS hospital while one succumbed to injuries during treatment.
Kerala Police have launched a probe and search operations are underway to nab the truck driver. CCTV footage from the site shows that the accident took place at around midnight. More details are awaited.
