Bankhandi (Rajeev Sharma): A truck went uncontrolled and rolled on the roadside around 9.45 am on Friday morning at Sira da Bharo, 3 km from Bankhandi on Hoshiarpur-Dharamshala National Highway 503. Thankfully, the truck got stuck on top of the road along with a crash barrier and a riot, and a major accident was averted as there was a deep moat at the bottom. There is no loss of life or property in this accident. Let me tell you that some time ago, a truck fell from here, which was found after three days and the driver was killed.
According to the information received, the truck was going from Kangra towards Una. According to information received from eyewitnesses, the accident happened due to negligence of the truck driver. He said that the truck driver was driving the truck in the wrong direction and in spite of this the accident occurred due to the truck driver overtaking the vehicle at a sharp turn. A local taxi driver from Bankhandi said that the truck driver was driving the truck carelessly and due to this negligence, 2 more vehicles survived the grip of the truck. One of these car drivers, working sensibly, removed his car in the drain, due to which he survived the grip of the truck.
When the local people reached the spot and asked the truck driver to know his skills and the reason for the accident, the truck driver turned himself upside down and started calling them words. As soon as the incident was reported, ASI Kishore Chand from Police Chakii Ranital reached the spot along with his team after a lot of effort with the help of a crane to get the truck out and smooth the traffic. No case has been registered with the police till the news is written.
