Darjeeling lorry crash in Sepoydhura kills two

Darjeeling lorry crash in Sepoydhura kills two
Two persons were killed Tuesday night when their vehicle met with an accident on NH55 and fell about 100ft. down a cliff near Sepoydhura in Kurseong sub-division area. 
Police said a Swaraj Mazda truck (WB-73C-0237) loaded with PDS rice was proceeding towards Darjeeling from Siliguri when the accident occurred, killing both the driver and his assistant on the spot.
Personnel from the Kurseong fire brigade retrieved the bodies and sent them to the Kurseong sub-divisional hospital around 1:30am for postmortem.
The driver has been identified as Kewal Tamang (23), a resident of Teen Mile near Jorbungalow, while his helper, Pravin Gurung (23), was a resident of Sikhsingh Forest Busty near Teen Mile.
The actual cause of the accident is yet to be ascertained, but as the road size where the mishap occurred is very narrow and interspersed with sharp bends, it is being conjectured the driver may have lost control as he was speeding. A tree at the spot has also been uprooted, while bags filled with rice were found scattered all over the area.(EOIC)
