According to reports, the three persons, most probably the natives of Madhya Pradesh, were riding triple seat on the motorcycle (MP-48/MJ 3979). They were passing through the Katol Road when the school bus, driven recklessly, collided with the motorcycle from behind. The forceful impact hurled the trio high in the air and crashed on the road. Two of the motorcycle riders reportedly came under the wheels of the school bus and were crushed to death on the spot. The third rider too received grievous injuries and was rushed to a hospital by nearby people.

Gittikhadan police, who were informed about the accident, reached the spot and sent bodies of two victims to Government Hospital for post-mortem. The cops also took the school bus driver into their custody and towed the vehicle to police station. Further probe is underway.

Details are awaited.
