At least 25 people were killed and 10 others injured when a speeding truck overturned and fell into a roadside ditch near Titai Bigha village in Aurangabad district early Thursday morning.

The truck, carrying 35 labourers, overturned on NH 139 before rolling into a roadside ditch in the wee hours, superintendent of police Daljeet Singh told PTI.

About 35 people were on board and 25 of them were killed when the vehicle overturned. Ten others were injured, he said.

The labourers, who had come to Aurangabad for harvesting crops, were returning to their native Lesiganj village in Daltonganj district bordering Jharkhand, Singh said.

Senior civil and police officials have rushed to the spot.
