5 injured in series of accident near Palasuni Chhak in Bhubaneswar

Bhubaneswar: In an unfortunate incident, at least five persons were injured in a series of accident near Palasuni Chhak in Bhubaneswar this afternoon.

The series of accident occurred after a speeding stone-laden truck (OR-02 BB 7737) reportedly hit several cars and bikes on the road near the Palasuni Chhak, which is considered to be an accident-prone spot in the State Capital City.

While all the injured persons, who were trapped inside a car, were rescued and rushed to the Capital hospitals for treatment, vehicular movement was heavily affected on the busy route as some angry locals staged a road blockade on the spot. They demanded action against accused truck driver and a permanent solution for such repeated road mishaps on the spot.

A team of cops from the Mancheswar Police station reportedly reached the spot and are trying to bring normalcy in the area and make ways for the stranded hundreds of vehicles.

Speaking about the accident, one of the eye-witnesses claimed that the drivers of such heavy vehicles are driving the vehicles while they are under the influence of alcohol. Though such vehicles are not permitted to enter the city during the daytime, but no one obeys the rule. Since it is a NH and there is no speedometer, the vehicles go at high speed and cause such accidents regularly, he alleged.
