A driver of a tractor was killed when a brick-laden tractor plunged into the Gumti river following collapse of a bailey bridge on Daudkandi-Batakandi road at Kadamtoli in Daudkandi upazila in Cumilla on Monday.

The deceased was identified as Khokon Mia, son of Amzad Mia of Mogarchar village under Dharmapasha upazila in Munshiganj.

Police said that the tractor fell into the river following the collapse of a bailey bridge around 10:00 am, leaving Khokon dead on the spot.

The local administration hanged a signboard banning movement of heavy vehicles on the bailey bridge after the collapse of a pillar of the bridge over Gumti River two years back.
