Four brick kiln workers were killed and two others injured when a wood-laden truck ploughed through a house at Islampur in Chattogram's Rangunia upazila early Thursday.

The identities of the deceased could not be known yet.

Imiaz Ahmed Bhuiya, officer-in-charge of Rangunia Police Station, said the accident took place around 4 am when the truck ploughed through a makeshift house made for brick kiln workers after its driver lost control over the steering, leaving four workers dead on the spot.

The six workers hailing from Hatiya upazila in Noakhali were asleep at the house when the accident occurred.

On information, police recovered the bodies and sent those to Chittagong Medical College and Hospital morgue.
