18 dead in accident in Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki after truck hits bus.

At least 18 labourers, sleeping on the road in front of a bus, were crushed to death on Wednesday morning by a speeding truck in Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki district, 28 km from state capital Lucknow.

The labourers, who are from Bihar, were returning from Haryana when their bus broke down on a highway last night. They then slept on the road in front of the bus.

The truck hit the bus from behind, crushing the labourers to death.

The injured labourers have been taken to a nearby hospital, said senior police officer Satya Narayan Sabat.

A rescue operation to recover bodies stuck under the bus is on, the officer said.
