Guys there had been a major accident on NH-58 yesterday morning killing 7 people.It was a head on collision between a UPSRTC bus and a Maruti Suzuki Zen.The car was carrying 7 passengers and all seven were dead at the spot.
It is due to the Kanwar yatra that highway is closed on one side and whole traffic is moving on one side of the divider and there is a wide turn on the highway on a high speed stretch.
Here is all what was found in the newspaper:-
News on the front page:-
Its no doubt that buses are proving to be more dangerous than trucks on NH-58.Everyday you can spot one or two accidents on the NH-58,especially on a place called Khatauli-byepass and Mansoorpur(the same place where this one happened)due to the high speed with which most of the people drive here.
Two days back 4 people were killed in an accident.
Three days back 21 were killed.(this is due to the traffic moving on one side of divider)
And about a week back a Volvo bus tailgated a Santro at high speed killing all four people in the Santro.
