COIMBATORE: Three people including two army personnel were killed when an army truck bearing the coffin of an army Subedar who died in Meghalaya overturned here on Mettupalayam – Annur route near Sirumugai on Wednesday afternoon. The Subedar was being escorted to his native town in Nilgiris district. The third fatality was a civilian, an assistant engineer with Tamil Nadu Housing Board Unit who had decided to escort the body after it was brought to the Coimbatore Airport on Wednesday afternoon. He was the deceased jawan’s relative and boarded the army truck along with his wife, Selvi who was also injured in the mishap. At least 14 people were travelling inside the vehicle including seven army personnel and relatives of the deceased army man. The mishap occurred after the driver of the truck lost control when he suddenly applied his brakes to avoid ramming into a two wheeler rider coming from the opposite direction near Muthiyor Illam. The vehicle overturned, crushing the people who were seated at the back along with the coffin. According to police, Saravanan, an army Subedar serving in Meghalaya died while undergoing medical treatment at a hospital there on August 6.
