Vadodara: At least four persons were killed and 16 were injured, four of them seriously, as a truck hit a stationary tempo at Ajva Chokdi on the outskirts of the city on Monday.

The victims were sleeping in the tempo which was parked on the roadside when a speeding truck hit it from behind.

The truck driver absconded, police said.

Arvind Vanzara, an eye-witness, said that the tempo was parked as it had run out of fuel, and the victims were returning after visiting a durgah at Unza (in north Gujarat).

The victims were identified as Kinjal Vanzara, Renuka Vanzara, Bhavesh Vanzara and Sunita Vanzara, said police.
