The bridegroom and the car driver were among those killed in the accident that took place near Narora village in the district.

The marriage party was heading to Amilia village where Kol's wedding was arranged. Two girls were seriously injured in the mishap and admitted in a hospital for treatment, the officer said.

A JCB machine was pressed into service to separate the car from the truck and later its parts were cut for take out the dead and the injured.
