A truck rammed into a state transport bus on Thursday near Chalisgaon in north Maharashtra's Jalgaon district killing minimum 22 people and injuring 25 others.

"The accident occurred around 1.30 pm when the speeding container truck rammed into the stationary bus of the Maharashtra state road transport corporation (MSRTC)," said DSP Keshav P.

"So far, we have information about 22 deaths in the Chalisgaon civil hospital... Other injured victims have been rushed to hospitals in neighbouring towns, including Dhule," Keshav added

According to eyewitness accounts, the intensity of the accident was so powerful that the container spliced the bus in the middle, resulting in the high number of casualties.
