New Delhi: A 30-year-old man died after he was struck and dragged by a truck for nearly 100 metres, while his minor friend was injured after the vehicle rammed into their scooter on Tuesday in North Delhi's Kashmere Gate area, police said.

The speeding truck crashed into the scooter near Yamuna Bridge in the early hours.
