Bus collides with truck due to smog, four dead”

Eyewitnesses said the bus driver was trying to overtake a vehicle when the accident took place.

Most of the bus passengers were the government employees and going to Jalalabad. Poor visibility in the area caused the head-on collision, a police officer said.

As soon as the bus reached near village Kari Kalan, it collided with the truck that was coming from the Fazilka side, police said. Two others succumbed to injuries later on.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has announced Rs 1 lakh ex-gratia each for the kin of those killed in the tragic collision between a truck and a Punjab Roadways bus.

In a similar accident in Gujarat, at least 13 people were killed and nine injured after a truck collided with a jeep on Ahmedabad-Indore highway late on Monday.

The spiralling road accident numbers bring to the fore the urgency to expedite the passage of the of the motor vehicle amendment bill that lawmakers have put on hold for the last several years.
