Six people including two women and as many kids hailing from Maharashtra were killed and seven others injured on Thursday when their vehicle dashed against a tree near the road at Matkuli, 80kms from here, police said.

The injured have been admitted to a hospital, Pipariya sub divisional officer of police (SDOP) Kamlesh Kharpusa said.

He said the victims hailed from Matha village of Chandrapur district in Maharashtra and had come to attend a religious function in Pachmarhi.

Initially, it appears that the four-wheeler driver Sanjay, who fled after the accident, dozed off around 5am and that caused the mishap, the SDOP said.
