Ten people, including five children, were killed and four critically injured after a bus rammed into an autorickshaw on NH-77 between Muzaffarpur and Sitamarhi on Monday evening.
All the deceased were in the overcrowded auto.
The bus driver fled after the accident, the police said. Hun-dreds of locals soon gathered to block traffic between
the two district town headquarters.
Muzaffarpur SSP Vivek Kumar confirmed 10 deaths and said three injured people had been admitted to a Muzaffarpur hospital. The 10 passengers, including five children aged between five and 12 years, died on the spot. ENS
