Four died and 15 others suffered injuries in a road accident in Nashik in the early hours of Monday.

The accident occurred around 12:30 a.m. when a truck rammed into a stationary tempo, a police official said.

The tempo, which was carrying devotees who were coming from a temple in the district's Kalwan tehsil, was parked by the roadside in Krishnagaon here due to faulty brakes when the incident took place at around 12:30 am, an official said.

"A truck going towards Dindori from Nanduri hit the stalled tempo from the rear. Some people were in the process of getting down from the tempo and others were inside it. Four persons were killed and 15 were injured," he said.

The deceased are identified as Sagar Thakur (22), Kunal Thakur (19), Ganesh Thakur (38) and Ashish Thakur (27).

A case was registered under section 304A (causing death by negligence) and other relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code and efforts were on to nab the absconding truck driver, a Vani police station officer said.
