Two people were killed and three others injured when a roadways bus rammed into a car, which hit a bicycle and a scooty, at the Burlington crossing in Lucknow on Thursday night.

The accident created chaos at the busy crossing, stalling traffic movement for about two hours, even as angry locals and passersby damaged the bus with lathis and bricks.

Two of the injured, including the scooty rider Subhodhini Dwivedi, were in critical condition.
