A minimum of 13 people have been killed after a truck ran over 18 people sleeping on a footpath at Kim Char Rasta near Surat in Gujarat within the wee hours on Tuesday.

The victims, all of whom have been day by day labourers from Rajasthan’s Banswara district, have been sleeping on the footpath when a sugarcane-laden tractor crashed into one other truck. The truck driver misplaced management of the car and veered off the highway, on to the footpath, working over 18 people who have been sleeping there.

Whereas 13 people died on the spot, others have been rushed to a close-by hospital.

Extra particulars are awaited.
