One person died while five others were injured in a fatal road accident on Saturday night near Faith petrol pump, 5th Mile, Dimapur.

According to Dimapur police, the incident happened around 11 p.m. when the vehicle (Bolero) collided head-on with a truck which was approaching on the wrong lane along NH-29.
Of the six occupants, one succumbed while two out of the five injured remained in critical condition, police said. The injured were rushed to Referral hospital and Zion hospital.
