The casualties include two women and five minor kids. All injured have been admitted to the local hospital for treatment of which five are said to be critical, a local police official said.

The accident took place on Dhule-Solapur road shortly after mid-night.

The van was carrying farm labourers to Osmanabad from the neighbouring state of Madhya Pradesh in sugarcane fields.
