HAMREN: At least 20 persons, including a pregnant woman, were injured when a vehicle turned turtle in Kendurgaon in Assam's West Karbi Anglong district. At least 20 people have been shifted to the nearby Kheroni Model Hospital for their treatment following the incident.
The TATA vehicle (registration number AS-02AC-6664) was heading from Mokhindur to Jengkha when the mishap occurred. The truck reportedly turned turtle after the driver sped up.
"At least 11 persons are said to be in a serious condition. While some have broken their waists, some have broken their feet. We are still unsure what kind of fate will befall those who were injured," a local informed scribes.
"The vehicle arrived in the village in the wee hours of the morning. However, it fell off the road when the driver began to speed up, leading to a steering failure. What he probably did not take into account was the treacherous nature of the road," he further informed.
