Dehradun, 28 Nov: One person died on the spot while at least three others were injured as a big truck rammed into their bikes at Chandrabani Chowk, here, today. The truck driver had reportedly lost control of the truck due to failed brakes. The injured were taken to the Hospital in a 108 Ambulance. The accident also led to a huge crowd that gathered at the accident spot leading to a traffic jam for several hours.
According to the ISBT Chowki Police, a bike rider died after being crushed by a truck near Chandrabani Chowk. Three other bikers were injured but the truck then rammed into some roadside shops before coming to a halt, injuring a woman and a man. The truck was coming to Dehradun from Saharanpur. Brake failure is being stated as the reason for the accident.
Questions are being raised regarding the failure of the Police to monitor movement of trucks in the city despite the fact that many areas remain restricted for the trucks during daytime. Also, there is the question whether the vehicle was fit to ply on the road. The truck was speeding when the accident occurred and it could easily have killed more people.
According to the onlookers, once the truck driver lost control of the vehicle, he started continuous honking as the truck kept on moving but the accident still occurred, killing one person on the spot. The dead body of the person was removed after the truck was moved with the help of a crane.
Speaking to Garhwal Post, SHO Patel Nagar, Surya Bhushan Negi disclosed that the dead person had been identified as Harbans Lal, son of Hans Lal, and a resident of Chandrabani village. He was aged 60. The injured are Dinesh, a resident of Sundarpur village in Saharanpur district of UP, Uma Thapa and Ashok Kandwal.
Meanwhile, in another accident, on the Rishikesh Gangotri Highway, near Sankri, a Maruti car overturned on the road, killing a 13 year old boy and injuring other passengers. In all, there were six passengers in the car and it was going from Neri to Belagavi Barat.
