Shivpuri (Madhya Pradesh): An onion-loaded truck turned turtle on the Gwalior four-lane road in Shivpuri district on Tuesday and onions were scattered everywhere. One person who was on the truck and sustained minor injuries in the accident was sent to a hospital, the police said. As soon as the people came to know of it, they rushed to the spot and escaped with onions.

The onion-loaded truck, coming from Maharashtra, was going to Gwalior and it turned turtle on the four-lane high way near Khubat Ghati. On getting information, the police rushed to the spot and prevented the villagers from taking away onions. The truck turned turtle because the driver was feeling sleepy, the police further said.
