Call it a mega accident on highway causing death to four persons. This happened due to a collision between two trucks in Jharkhand's Khunti district.  

The accident took place this morning at around 7 am at Chanpi village in Karra, around 40 km from the state capital Ranchi, after one goods truck collided head-on with the other truck due to dense fog, a senior officer said.

 "A stone chip-laden truck and the other loaded with sand collided head-on. 

Two drivers and two helpers were taken to the Sadar Hospital where they succumbed to their injuries," he said.
