IANS  |  Kolkata 

Two persons were killed when a speeding light commercial vehicle hit them at Strand Road near the Calcutta High on Sunday, the city police said.

"At about 7.30 a.m., a Tata 407 mini-truck hit two persons -- a male, 19, and a female, 42 -- at Strand Road near the High and ran away. The victims were walking through when the vehicle hit them," said an officer of police Traffic control.

The victims were rushed to the SSKM Hospital where they were declared brought dead. Their identities are yet to be established.

"It seemed the victims were relatives. The hunt for the vehicle and the accused is still on," the police officer said.

Most of the recent accidents took place in the city due to reckless driving during late night and morning hours, according to the police.
