As many as 15 passengers were injured when a Puri-bound tourist bus from West Bengal rammed into an iron ore laden truck parked on Brahmani bridge near Gokarneswar temple on NH-5 under Dharmasala police limits on Friday.
The injured were rushed to Dharmasala hospital while five out of them were shifted to SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack after their condition deteriorated, police said.
