Twelve people lost their lives and 21 others sustained injuries in a road accident at Banke District on Monday morning.

The accident took place in Thuriya forest area at Rapti Sonari Rural Municipality-2 of Banke district. Superintendent and chief of Banke District Police Office (DPO) Bir Bahadur Oli said 11 people had lost their lives on the spot and the other one breathed last while undergoing treatment at hospital, reports Xinhuanet.

The van carrying people who had entered Nepal from Nepal-India border with Nepalgunj and Dang as their destinations rammed into a parked truck at 12:15 am on Monday morning.

The injured are undergoing treatment at hospital and the deceased are yet to be identified, according to DPO.

According to Oli, the van was carrying more people than its capacity allows and was speeding.

"The truck was parked on the road as it was broken and the van has pushed the truck 45 meters from its initial position," he told Xinhua on Monday. "The van was definitely speeding and had added passengers on the way after it departed from its starting pickup point."
