In a freak accident, a truck crushed a motorcyclist to death after another truck hit the two-wheeler near Paddi village on Monday.

The deceased was identified as Satish Kumar, 35, a native of Haryana. His brother-in-law Prithvi Kumar, resident of Paddi village, who was riding pillion, suffered grievous injuries and was referred to PGIMER, Chandigarh.

Both truck drivers, identified as Narinder Singh of Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh, and Jaswinder Singh of Rupnagar, have been arrested.

Before they could react, a truck coming from the opposite side ran over Satish, killing him on the spot.
