At least eight tribals were killed and an equal number injured when the vehicle they were travelling in fell into a ditch in Madhya Pradesh's Betul district on Friday, an official said.

The accident occurred when a child sitting in the vehicle changed its gear to neutral while it was parked on a slope in Kukrukhamala village, resulting in the vehicle rolling down into a deep ditch. Eight people were killed on the spot and eight others injured, Betul Collector Arun Bhatt told IANS over phone.

The dead, who included four women and two girls, were members of a family going to pay obeisance at a shrine in the village, he added.
