Two men were killed and another sustained injuries when their car fell off a bridge in Odisha's Kalahandi district early today, a police officer said.
"The accident occured around 2am on National Highway-26, near Khasbahal village in the district. The two men were on their way to Kesinga from Sundergarh, where they had gone to attend business-related work," he said.
It seems the driver lost control of the car, which then skidded off the road and plunged 25 feet below the bridge, the officer said.
Both Dinesh Jain (41) and Sanjaya Agarwal (42) died on the spot, he said, adding that the driver had been admitted to a hospital with serious injuries.
