Truck Plows Into Indian Farmers, Kills 14

Fourteen people were killed in India on Friday when a truck plowed into a group of farmers who had gathered outside a police station, in what police said was an accident involving a drunk driver.
The speeding truck rammed into an electricity pole before hitting the farmers, some of whom were electrocuted. Seventeen people were hurt in the incident in Chittoor District in the southeastern state of Andhra Pradesh, said Superintendent of Police R. Jayalakshmi.
“The driver of the lorry was drunk; he drove in a rash manner and hit an electrical pole just next to the police station,” Jayalakshmi told Reuters by telephone.
“There was no indication that the deaths of the farmers who had gathered on the road outside the police station was anything but an accident. There is no terror link. It is a pure accident case. He is a local driver.”
