Punjab accident

This comes almost a month after three people, including a woman police officer, were killed and several injured after a Punjab Armed Police bus collided with a tractor at Mukeria in Hoshiarpur district of Punjab, said police. The bus carrying the personnel of the Punjab Armed Police was coming from Jalandhar. It collided with a trailer on the side of the road. The driver, a woman constable, and another policeman had lost their lives. 10 other policemen were injured. The bus full of 15-20 policemen was going from Jalandhar PAP centre to Gurdaspur.

Vadodara collision

Also on 31st January, thousands of commuters faced a nightmarish ordeal as a major accident involving two trucks brought traffic on the Ahmedabad-Mumbai National Highway (NH-8) to a standstill. The incident, which occurred near the Dumad intersection toll plaza in Vadodara, resulted in a 5 km long traffic jam that lasted for several hours.

According to initial reports, a truck loaded with railway tracks rammed into another truck carrying chemical powder at the Dumad intersection. The impact of the collision was severe, trapping the driver of one truck in the cabin and leaving the other driver with serious injuries.
