Car rolls off the cliff near New ISBT Shimla, 4 injured, 1 critical
Despite high rate of such accidents, again, crash barriers/parapets were found missing even in Shimla City.
SHIMLA- This morning, a Maruti car, carrying five people including the driver, fell into 100 meters gorge after the driver lost control. As per initial information one person is critical while others received minor injuries. All injured were rushed to IGMC. The reason of the accident is not know yet. The witnesses report that car was heading towards New ISBT when it suddenly took a sharp.
The detailed report is awaited.
It’s not astonishing that HP Govt. has and is always careless about ensuring roadside safety through parapets and crash barriers.
A lot of complaints were made to HPPWD after many lost their lives due to road mishaps. The HP Govt. placed a couple of parapets and crash barriers at a few points in Shimla and left rest of length unattended.
The Govt. couldn’t deliver much on the name road safety even in the capital city Shimla. Condition in rest of the State can be easily imagined.
