Three persons including two girls died on the spot when a sand-laden truck rammed into an auto-rickshaw at Bhalupali Chowk in the outskirts of the town on SH-10 connecting Sambalpur-Rourkela SH under Ainthapali police limits on Monday.

Two of the six persons injured in the accident have been shifted to VSS Medical at Burla as their condition deteriorated. The driver of the truck managed to flee.
