Five members of a family were burnt alive after the car in which they were travelling collided with a tractor on the national highway in Haryana's Palwal district, police said on Wednesday.

The car had a CNG engine and caught fire immediately after the accident on Tuesday, the police said.

The victims were unable to move out of the car as the central locking system of the vehicle got jammed due to the collision.

All the five victims, who were residents of East Delhi's Kalyanpuri area, were coming from Uttar Pradesh's Agra city.

Fire brigade personnel, who reached the spot after the mishap, said they were unable to save anyone.

The police said the driver of the tractor escaped from the spot immediately after the accident.
