A vehicle carrying construction workers toppled near Kothagiri. Ten people were injured in this accident.
The vehicle was shuttling between Kothagiri and Kannerimukku. The accident happened when the vehicle was crossing the second hairpin bend when it lost control and toppled. The 10 people who were travelling in this tempo were injured badly and were rushed to the government hospital in Kothagiri. Two of them were moved to the Ooty GH for further treatment.
Even though there is a rule to not use commercial carrier vehicles to transport people, these rules are flouted with impunity. Before more lives are lost, hope the district administration puts a lid on these transgressions.
