Housewife killed in Jessore road crash
A housewife was killed and her husband injured in a road accident on Jhikargachha-Bakra road at Mohadebpur in Monirampur Upazila on Saturday.
Witnesses said the accident took place when a pickup van hit a motorcycle injuring a couple -- Lucky Khatun, 26, and her husband Mosharraf Hossain, at Mohadebpur around 2:30pm.
They were taken to General Hospital. As Lucky’s condition deteriorated, she was referred to Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH), but she died on the way while being moved to the DMCH.
Mosharraf, who returned from Malaysia recently, his wife and their son, Alvi, were travelling by the motorcycle.
Alvi, however, escaped the accident unhurt.
