Three women, including one pregnant, were killed in what appeared to be a high-speed, pre-dawn, road collision between a passenger van and a truck in which the van has been crushed beyond recognition, in Moragoda, near Anuradhapura, last morning.

The three women were passengers of the completely mangled van. The van and a lorry carrying animal food collided near the Moragoda junction on the Thambuttegama-Anuradhapura road.

The accident took place around 4.40am. Six persons including three females, who had been travelling on the van, had been admitted to the Anuradhapura Hospital due to injuries sustained in the collision.

Three women, including a pregnant woman, had later succumbed to their injuries. The deceased were identified as Nurdeen Mawsiya (65), Tharsir Thashmiya (32) and Nishan Meesha (23) and were residents of Alahapperumagama, Wijithapura. The driver of the lorry and two other persons travelling in the lorry too had been admitted to the Anuradhapura Hospital. Thalawa Police are investigating.
