A 19-year-old college student was crushed to death by a speeding bus when he fell off his bike after being hit by an ambulance on the busy Dhaka-Bogura highway in Bogura on Friday night.
The deceased was identified as Sakib Hasan, a student of Institute of Information Technology Bogra (IITB) and son of Rafiqul Islam.
The accident occurred when the Dhaka-bound ambulance from Bogura hit Sakib's bike near the Noymile Bus Stand area in Shahjahanpur upazila.
"The deceased was riding the bike, while his friend Sunny Ahmed was riding pillion. Both of them fell off the bike in the impact. But before Sakib could get up, he was run over by the commuter bus," said AKM Baniul Alam, in-charge of Sherpur Highway Police.
"We have seized the bus and sent the body to the local hospital morgue," he added.
