Update : 15 Feb 2023, 15:02

Three Bangladeshi students were killed and one was injured severely in a road accident in Canada's Toronto on Monday night.

The deceased were Shahriar Khan, Angela Barai and Aryan Dipta. They were in between 17-21 years and all of them were the students of Humber College.

The accident took place on Highway 427 southbound ramp to Dundas Street West in Ontario around 11:30pm local time.

A police sergeant Kerry Schmidt described the accident as a ‘very violent collision’ that involved ‘extreme high rates of speed,’ on the Dundas exit ramp off the southbound Highway 427, according to CTV news.

In a video posted to social media, Schmidt said a vehicle with four occupants was travelling southbound when it left the ramp and went over a concrete wall into the ditch before crashing into another concrete wall.

The vehicle was then redirected back into the ramp, he said, where it then caught on fire.

“The driver of the vehicle lost control and hit the highway railing. The car turned over. Later the car caught fire in the Highway 427 southbound off-ramp to Dundas Street at around 11:23pm,” reports CTV News.

Fire Service men rushed to the scene and rescued the victims.
