At least three people were killed and two others were injured in two separate accidents in Colombo-Katunayake Expressway and the Southern Expressway.

Police said two people were killed and one injured when a car they were travelling in, crashed into a lamp post near the Ja-Ela entrance of the Colombo-Katunayake Expressway this morning.

The driver (23) and a passenger (25) were succumbed to injuries after being admitted to the Ragama Hospital. The victims were identified as residents of Minuwangoda and Ja-Ela.

Meanwhile, another 25-year-old was killed and another person was injured when a cab travelling towards Matara collided with a car near the Pinnaduwa entrance of the Southern Expressway yesterday.

    Funny, the accidents are both on the slip road indicating the drivers did not know how to reduce speed when leaving the highway!

    Must seriously consider introducing Age limits when issuing Driving Licences..
