Three Indians among the eight persons killed and three others have suffered critical injuries after two trucks crushed a minibus in southern England highway on Sunday.

Three passengers battling for life have been identified as Indian citizens.

England Police have identified the three Indians as employees of Wipro and were working for Nottingham firm Capital One.

The three were among the group of 11 passengers boarding the ill-fated bus who were being driven to London to meet a coach which was taking them on a last minute holiday to France.

A Wipro spokesperson identified the three deceased as Karthikeyan Ramasubramaniyam Pugalur, Rishi Rajeev Kumar, and Vivek Bhaskaran and said, “With deep regret and sadness that we confirm the passing away of three of our colleagues in UK."

The driver of the bus, Cyriac Joseph, was among those who lost their lives in the accident. He was hired to take the group from Nottingham to London.

Two lorry drivers have been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
