Three persons were killed in a motor vehicle accident that occurred in the vicinity of the Manampitiya-Kotaleeya bridge at about 3.30 this dawn.

This accident occurred while they were traveling in a private bus back home on after attending a Samurdhi workshop.

The police suspects that this accident may have taken place as a result of the driver falling asleep.
