According to witnesses, the car was heading towards Kolkata from Raiganj, while the truck was coming from the opposite direction.
All the victims were occupants of the car. Their identities are yet to be ascertained.
The witnesses said that due to the ongoing road repair works, vehicles were moving through a single-lane.
Local police claimed that accidents have become frequent in the area because of the single-lane vehicle movement just ahead of the toll-plaza.
