An 11-year-old boy was killed and his father was injured when a log-laden three-wheeler, locally known as "tom tom" overturned in Patuakhali's Kalapara upazila today.
The deceased was identified as Babul of Moazzampur village under Kalapara upazila, said Officer-in-Charge of Mahipur Police Station Moniruzzaman.
According to police and family sources, Ruhul Amin (35) and his son Babul were taking the logs to a saw mill in Mahipur.
After reaching Nijshibbaria around 11:00am, the three-wheeler turned upside down due to poor road condition, leaving Babul dead on the spot.
Locals rescued Ruhul and took him to Kalapara Upazila Health Complex.
